Lupe 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!
