Episode 12

by and


Fresh off the release of his debut Dreamville release, West 1996 Pt. 2, Lute came by the studio to talk about how one day he was getting in trouble for using his phone at his job in Walmart, and the next he was kicking it with J. Cole, who just so happened to be a fan.

Lute also discusses the long process behind the new release and why sometimes he found himself having doubts about it, as well as what's it's like for him now to watch the gentrification of the west Charlotte neighborhoods he grew up in.
