He revealed: "I always thought I would be doing music rather than acting."

At the age of ten, West and his sister Simone moved to Compton, California with their mother because she was looking for a better job and then they moved to Norwalk, California. When he was fifteen or sixteen, West moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career where he struggled for two years and lived at his manager's house.West made his acting debut in 1995, appearing in the CBS drama Picket Fences in season 4: episode 6 titled "Heart of Saturday Night", where he played Dave Lattimore.
