Lute — Dreamville

Lute named the project West 1996 because he’s from the west side of Charlotte and fell in love with hip-hop in 1996.

Luther “Lute” Nicholson’ was born in
West Charlotte, North Carolina.

Lute’s Dilla-produced head nodder, “Still Slummin’,” was included on the Revenge Of The Dreamers II Dreamville compilation.
