Lute loves 90's rap and jazz, so throw your dubs up high.

4.5 superbActivista anti-MTV | March 9th 12

Charlotte, NC emcee Lute fondly recalls the hip-hop of the 90s. His Westside1996 is an rattempt to recapture that golden era of hip-hop. Classic hip-hop included artists as diverse ras Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., A Tribe Called Qwest, and Nasir Jones himself. Despite rthe immense potential of that era, many of the promises of 90s hip-hop were unrealized. NAS rfaded away after Illmatic, while 2pac and Biggie burnt out. Q-tip and his crew consistently rput out great albums, but to little fanfare. Lute captures the best of each of these artists rwith Westside1996. Lute defines himself in terms of his own personal success (see r"Success"), but it remains to be seen if he is able to capture the glory that has eluded his rpredecessors.
