Dreamville/Interscope Records recording artist Lute releases his debut project, “West 1996 Pt.2”. and accompanying video for his single “Night Shift”. “West 1996 Pt 2” project is the follow-up to his first solo mixtape West 1996 Pt.1 which dropped in 2012. His mixtape success caught the ear of J. Cole who later signed the rising rapper to Dreamville Records in 2015.
“My album 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.
