Dreamville’s Lute – Gold Mouf

The project features JID, Saba, BJ The Chicago Kid, Ari Lennox, WESTSIDE Boogie, and More.

After bravely revealing his troubling bout with anxiety in an episode of Gold Mouf Chronicles and nimbly peeling back another layer with his latest single, “Myself,” featuring Charlotte native DEVN, Lute officially announces his debut album Gold Mouf. Slated to drop Oct. 4, Lute recruits a team of formidable lyricists such as JID, WESTSIDE BOOGIE, Saba, and Little Brother. He also teams up with soulful singers BJ The Chicago Kid, Ari Lennox, and DEVN to ultimately bring his vision to life. 

In various conversations with Complex and GQ, Lute openly spoke about his past issues with anxiety. “The way I found out about anxiety was from an infomercial one night,” he recalled in his June conversations with Complex. “I couldn’t sleep, and I was flipping through the channels…and, you know how infomercials come through: ‘Do you have such and such? Are you feeling this way?” 360 Magazine is impressed with this album from Lute as it is his debut album. 

With Gold Mouf Chronicles, Lute discussed how multiple family members also have anxiety and that when he was young, he had open-heart surgery, leaving his future up to fate. While the procedure was successful, he constantly felt like he needed to prove something of himself as he made frequent trips to get tests done on his heart until he was 17. His anxiety still affects him today, before shows, daily interactions with his family and team, and even at home. His anxiety attacks have also occurred in very public moments, most notably during his Dreamville Fest set-in and halftime performance during the Hornets vs. Rockets game in March 2020. After a horrible attack last year, he started taking medication and attending meditation and breathing sessions at a dojo to help cope with his anxiety.

The series features Lute’s 2020 single, “GED (Gettin Every Dolla),” as its opening theme and has become a fan favorite. The Neal Farmer-directed video has now amassed over 1.6 MM views on YouTube. Following its release, Lute stunned fans with a halftime performance during the Hornets vs. Rockets showdown at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 2019, the Charlotte rapper teamed up with label head J. Cole, and hip hop phenom DaBaby for the track, “Under the Sun,” featured on the Grammy-nominated RIAA certified platinum Dreamville album Revenge of the Dreamers III. Lute also kept his hot streak intact last year when he released “Life” and the Madden 21 favorite, “Get It and Go.” Fans can catch the latest episodes of Gold Mouf Chronicles by visiting www.gettineverydolla.com. Next month, Lute will be joining his Dreamville compatriots at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver for the Dreamville On The Rocks concert.

Cozz Releases Debut Album

February 13, 2018 marked the premiere of L.A.-bred rapper Cozz’s debut album, Effected. The album is released by Dreamville/Interscope Records.

Yesterday, Cozz also released a short documentary titled Cozz: Effected. The candid and intimate piece follows the South Central native to his childhood home, tracing the origins of his artistry as a rapper and writer. Directed by Darius Turbak, Cozz: Effected also offers insight into Cozz’s writing process and the making of his full-length debut.

In creating Effected, Cozz worked with producers like Meez (his longtime collaborator), Enimal, Louie Ji, and Soul Professa. The album includes three previously released singles: “Questions,” “Badu” (feat. Curren$y), and “Ignorant Confidence” (a track that HotNewHipHop praised for “show[ing] off his rapid-fire flow and slick wordplay”).

Born Cody Osagie, Cozz made his debut in 2013 with a video for his introspective song “Dreams.” The track caught the attention of J. Cole, who signed Cozz to his Dreamville imprint that year. In October 2014, the rapper released his Cozz & Effect project, featuring the Meez-produced single “Cody Macc.” His debut mixtape Nothin’ Personal then arrived in January 2016. Later that year, Issa Rae shouted out Cozz in episode 4 of the first season of her HBO debut, Insecure.
