Luh Dino, the 20-year-old rapper from Atlanta, GA, calls on counterparts and hip-hop heavy-weights Toosi, Vedo, and SlimeLife Shawty to assist him on his latest project, PHP, which stands for Prayer Heals Pain. Pain and healing are major themes throughout the album, inspired by Luh Dino’s own life experiences. The last year has been tumultuous for Luh Dino, as he almost lost his mom and his aunt, two of his biggest inspirations, to Covid-19. He lost many friends and has been through hardship and heartbreak over the past year. Like a true artist, he turns pain into passion through music. He’s been through a lot, and you can see him expressing those feelings across the 15-track album. Through all the loss he has experienced, his R&B side still continues to shine as he delivers melodic rap-fusion tracks that inspire and evoke emotions. And the single “Lil Thottie” is currently a Top 30 radio record, and on the Top 15 countdown on Sirius XM’s Hip Hop Nation.
PHP tells the story of Luh Dino and shows that his talent goes beyond the scope of genre lines. The budding artist flourishes in duets with fellow melodic rapper Toosii and leans into his R&B influences with one of Atlanta’s most notorious R&B singers and songwriter VEDO. Luh Dino proves that he can hold his own with trap-singer Slimelife Shawty, and introduces us to his own trap-leaning side. The vocals of the album show that Luh Dino is ready to prove himself more than just lyrically. Opening up and giving listeners an album filled with pain, suffering, love, and healing, Luh Dino exceeds expectations on PHP.
Luh Dino on “PHP’”: “Everything in the project is what I’ve gone through or experienced or seen someone close to me go through. This project is my milestone and the start of a new me. It’s a lot of songs that cater to women because I love women. There are a lot of R&B vibes and I also have turn-up strip club bangers as well.”
