Lupe Fiasco

Artist: Lupe Fiasco

Album: The Cool

Genre: Hip Hop

Comments: Chicago MC follows his spectacular debut Food & Liquor with an equally impressive 19-track concept album. Do a Google or Wikipedia search if you'd like to find out more about the background, though it's not necessary to enjoy the music. There are few rappers as good as Lupe who currently enjoy commercial success--Kanye and Black Thought come to mind. Guests include Snoop Dogg, Unkle and the singer-songwriter Matthew Santos, but some of the best tracks just feature Lupe dropping rhymes over a great beat, such as "Streets on Fire" and "The Coolest."
