Maestro Fresh Wes
Wesley Williams, better known as Maestro and Maestro Fresh Wes, is a Canadian rapper, record producer and actor. His pioneering status and outstanding achievements have led to him being referred to as the "Godfather of Canadian hip hop." In 1989, he became the first Canadian rapper to have a Top 40 hit, "Let Your Backbone Slide." After the success of his 1991 album, The Black Tie Affair, he returned to the Canadian charts with the hit singles "Stick to Your Vision" and "416/905 (T.O. Party Anthem)."
In 2012, Maestro released his first set of new material in more than seven years with the release of an EP entitled Black Tuxedo. This was followed by an album, Orchestrated Noise in 2013, which features rocker Sam Roberts, opera singer Measha Brueggergosman, rapper Kardinal Offishall, among others. Orchestrated Noise was released under the name Maestro Fresh Wes, reclaiming his original title from the 1980s.
