Dreamville/Interscope Records artist Lute has doubled down with two new Friday (September 29) releases — a video for “Morning Shift” and his Dreamville full-length debut, West 1996 Pt. 2.
Featuring 11 tracks, the album finds production from beatsmiths like Shiggy, Elite and Save Allen, and guest vocals from fellow Dreamville artists EarthGang, Cam O’bi, GQ Slaughter, Hi I’m Ry and Elevator Jay.
“This project is an accumulation of chapters and events leading up to Dreamville signing me,” the Charlotte, North Carolina native said in a press release. “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.”
