Lute is one of the new, young artists repping the West Coast who just released his mixtape West 1996 (click for tracklist/download @ 2DBZ). He's just released a video for one of the songs on the tape, which also just became my introduction to this spitter, ".80 Proof". Over one of the classic Pete Rock "PeteStrumentals" Lute's spitting some pretty fierce part which will have me having to check out some more material from this dude. Many thanks to 2DBZ who still gives shine on some sick debuting artists to look for in the future. Thoughts/love/hate??
