Over the summer, Charlotte rapper Lute announced that he had finished recording a followup to his stellar debut album, West 1996, entitled West '96 Pt. II: Still Slummin'. But then things got quiet. Perhaps for good reason.
Over the weekend, J. Cole released a mixtape entitled Revenge of the Dreamers II. Featured on the nine-track album is a reworked version of Lute's song, "Still Slummin'." Then came word that Dreamville Records has signed Lute to a deal.
