Lute Shares New Cinematic Short “Finding Self”


Last October, Dreamville’s own Lute launched his latest project Mouf d’or. The offering housed 13 tracks and features guest appearances from names including JID, Cozz, and Ari Lennox, in addition to Saba, Westside Boogie, BJ The Chicago Kid, and more. Last April, he released the official deluxe upgrade which added six new tracks, including “Like Wine” which was featured on DJ Drama’s D-Day: a Gangsta Grillz mixtape.

Yesterday (November 1), Charlotte’s emcee returned to share the latest offering from his album, the official visual for “Finding Self.” Directed by Juan Felipe Zuleta, the new music video is a short that takes fans on a journey of exploration. On the song, Lute delivers powerful lyrics about discovery:

“Once upon a time not so long ago I had to find myself, blind leading the blind almost half the time, I had to guide myself / I was out of love, luck, hope and of everything, I had to provide myself, I don’t dwell on failed relationships anymore, I had to find myself / Once upon a time not too long, I had to find myself, Once upon a time not too long, I had to find myself / Lately, a *** was missing (Uh), my wins felt like a loss (Yeah)”

In a recent interview, the “Ambitions” rapper reflected on how his latest project has helped him through some tough times lately. “Creating luxury gave me something to look forward to,” he said. “It put me in a place where you know, I can appreciate. I can feel like I’m working and doing something ’cause again, I’m the kind of nigga that’s working on my traumas.
