Wesley Willis (May 31, 1963 - August 21, 2003) was a musician from Chicago, noted for his original songs.

Willis, a longtime diagnosed schizophrenic, recorded over 50 albums during his career. A 6'5", 350 pound, mentally ill black man who made rock music was a rarity when he began his recording career in 1992. Willis was a tireless self promoter who went throughout Chicago selling his albums and his drawings. His well known songs include "Rock 'n Roll McDonalds", "Cut the Mullet", "Alanis Morissette", and "I Whupped Batman's Ass".

He died of complications from a June 2, 2003 emergency surgery to correct internal bleeding due to chronic myelogenous leukemia.
