Lute pays homage to both his lyrical ancestors and his own locale of Charlotte in this gray-scale video for "Queen City Slummin'." Mentions of Twitter and Horton Hears a Who! are the only things that remind you that you're watching this video in 2013, but this tribute to the hip hop old world remains fresh. Lute and Ry are the only people in the video, which lends to the eerie quality of the tour as they drive you through their own streets. Catch this Dilla revival on Lute's mixtape, West1996.
