Dreamville Records signee Lute gifts fans with a new short film about his life titled Lute: Still Slummin’. In the film, he tells his journey in North Carolina as a father with a young daughter, breaking down how it got started in music, his previous jobs & more.
He will be releasing hisWest 1996 Pt.2 project on September 29, the follow-up to his first solo mixtape West 1996 which dropped in 2012.
“This project is an accumulation of chapters and events leading up to Dreamville signing me. It’s a window into the last five years of my life…the obstacles, the challenges, the changes. It’s also motivation to not let people or circumstances define who you are. My only competition is the person I was yesterday. I’ve been patient and very appreciative of this platform and now its time to show what I’m capable of,” – LUTE
