Lute highlights Black Lives Matter protests in video for “Life”

He also addresses fatherhood and the coronavirus.

Dreamville artist Lute has released a video for his latest single, “Life.”

In the clip, the Charlotte rapper addresses the Black Lives Matter movement, fatherhood and the coronavirus. “See, you don’t get it, some things just be fuckin’ with my spirit / I’m just a l’il overwhelmed, my mom can hear it in my lyrics / But this the life I choose, so I continue with the vision / I stay true to self, and mind more of my business,” he spits.

The “Life” video is dedicated to victims of a shooting that took place in Charlotte last month, where four people were killed and several others injured during a block party that took place on Beatties Ford Road. The clip is also dedicated to Lute’s cousin, Marcus Okoye Withers.

“I know 2020 has been tough and heavy and anxieties are heightened,” the rapper wrote of the song’s release on Instagram. “I wanted to put something together to remind us all including myself to breathe and no matter how many times life knocks us down continue to fight and put our best foot forward.”
