Our Review

Developing in tandem with his Chi-Town mentor Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco’s sophomore effort is a far grander than his debut. “The Coolest,” “Little Weapon,” “Hello Goodbye,” and “The Die” are chock full of sound and syllable, buoyed by the same enormous, inflatable synths as Kanye’s Graduation. However, some of the best moments on The Cool hearken back to the nimble mischief of A Tribe Called Quest; “Paris, Tokyo” is Lupe’s holler-back to Tribe’s classic “Award Tour,” while “Gold Watch,” with its tricky beat and trickier rhymes, might be the album’s best song. As his music grows beyond the simple nostalgia of his 2006 hit “Kick, Push,” Lupe weaves what are easily mainstream rap’s most ambitious verses. “Dumb It Down” is a portfolio of exploratory rhyme styles: “I'm not a listener or a seer so my windshield smear / Here you steer, I really shouldn't be behind this / Clearly cause my blindness / The windshield is min-strel / The whole grill is roadkill / So trill and so sincere / Yeah, I'm both them there.” While songs like “Put You On Game” become too grandiloquent for their own good, there are dozens of verses on The Cool that are as complex and challenging as anything a Grammy-nominated rapper has ventured.

This Trancends Hip Hop - A Bonafide Classic (5 stars)
Wow. That's the only word that can possibly come to mind when slamming back down to earth after your first listen to this CD. The funny thing is, that feeling repeats itself after the second, third, fourth, tenth, twentieth listen. And it gets better every time, as you unveil layers of each track and figure out the complex metaphors and allusions. A suberb mix of both regular (I use that word for lack of a better term, because every song is

OMFG!! (5 stars)
OMFG!! Someone has came to save us from soulja boy!! Thank You!!!

Real music. (5 stars)
I'd say this is not only good music we've been lacking in hip-hop, but also with a worth-while message behind it. Not only is lupe fiasco one of the most intricate, interesting and clever rappers but he manages to have a great sound and place that appropriately over pretty good beats that always seem to be perfect for the songs. I'd say that as of now my favorite songs are Little Weapon (probably my favorite), Gold Watch, Streets on Fire, Go

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Chicago-based MC Lupe Fiasco (born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco) began rapping in junior high school and joined a group called da Pak several years later. The group signed to Epic, released one single, and split up, all before Fiasco reached the age of 20. Thanks in part to the vocal support of Jay-Z, L.A. Reid signed Fiasco as a solo artist to Arista, but before anything of significance was able to happen (only a promo single and a couple guest appearances were set up), Reid was fired, leaving the MC without...
