The Coolest

lupe.jpgLupe Fiasco AKA the best hip hop artist currently alive just dropped his second LP, The Cool, yesterday. How does it stack up to the hype? Stacks up quite well I would say.

It’s a dark album full of criticisms of today’s mainstream rap, politics, war, and the like. A wide departure from the usual mainstream rap we hear today, his lyricism blows my mind every time I listen to him flow. I loved the first single “Superstar” and have been listening to it religiously since it first dropped a few months ago. Eagerly awaiting the supposed November release date, I was a little irritated that it got pushed back until December. But…now that I have it, it was well worth the wait and am already overplaying it on my stereo. Tracks in particular to check out are “Gotta Eat,” (from the perspective of a hamburger), “Hello/Goodbye,” and “Paris Tokyo.”

He’s on tour starting in January so for all those out there I’d cop tickets soon from ticketmaster before they start to sell out. In particular I will be at the show in Anaheim on January 14th. To the first 3 people that come and find me and say the words “Future Rockstars of America” and I’ll buy you something nice…probably a drink if your over 21. I’ll be rockin’ the FR*A t-shirt. Hope to see ya there!
