J. Cole's Artist Lute Talks Hiatus And New Album

J. Cole's Dreamville label is about to release a new project from one of their flagship artists.

(AllHipHop News) Dreamville rapper Lute is preparing his first release since 2012.

The rapper signed with Dreamville in 2015, after first mixtape West 1996.

Later this month, Lute will release the follow-up titled West 1996 Pt.2.

"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," Lute explained.

Lute said he wrote the second installment to inspire his fans to better themselves.

"My only competition is the person I was yesterday. I've been patient and very appreciative of this platform and now it's time to show what I'm capable of,” comments Lute.

Lute's West 1996 Pt.2 will drop on September 29th at all digital retailers.
