Lennox’s riffs and lyrics take subtle yet powerful turns, making this track easy to digest while leaving it flavored with substance; just as its name alludes. Take a listen HERE.

“‘Whipped Cream’ is my little baby that expresses how I feel about an ex that I’m still not over. He’s the same n***a that I talked about in PHO,” says Ari.

“Whipped Cream” is the latest release from the Washington D.C. native who dropped her debut EP, PHO, in late 2016. PHO showcased Lennox’s immense talent while highlighting her position as the only female and sole vocalist of her crew. The young talent has described her music as “modern, relaxed, turned up soul… reminiscent of the beautiful music from the ‘70s” while labeling her voice, “imperfect, but pretty.”

DREAMVILLE RECORDING ARTIST LUTE RELEASES WEST 1996 PT. 2 PROJECT

Joins J.I.D And Earthgang on The Never Had Sh!t Tour

Dreamville/Interscope Records recording artist Lute will join fellow labelmates J.I.D and Earthgang on their upcoming Never Had Sh!t Tour which kicks off on November 2nd in Toronto, ON.  In addition to the release of West 1996 Pt.2, Lute also dropped a brand new visual for “Morning Shift” today.

The new project is the follow up to his first solo mixtape West 1996 which dropped in 2012. His mixtape success caught the ear of J. Cole who later signed the rising rapper to Dreamville Records in 2015. Lute also gives his fans a look into his life with the release of Lute: Still Slummin’ Documentary which can be seen HERE.

West 1996 Pt. 2 is a contemporary throwback featuring soulful production contributions from GRAMMY-winner Cam O’bi (“Ford’s Prayer” and “Premonition” feat. Earthgang), alongside Shiggy (“Home” feat. Elevator Jay and “Git Up’ feat. GQ Slaughter), Elite (“Ambitions”) and Save Allen (“Morning Shift“, “Crabs In A Barrel“ and “Livin’ Life” feat. High I’m Ry).  The first single “Juggin’,” also produced by Save Allen, serves as a metaphor for how Lute has approached his 28 years on the planet.

“This project is an accumulation of chapters and events leading up to Dreamville signing me. It’s a window into the last five years of my life…the obstacles, the challenges, the changes. It’s also motivation to not let people or circumstances define who you are. My only competition is the person I was yesterday. I’ve been patient and very appreciative of this platform and now its time to show what I’m capable of,” comments Lute.

If you haven’t already, check out the video for “Juggin’,” HERE.
