iTunes Review

Don’t be fooled by the goofy retro futurism of the album cover, which shoots for a Bambaataa aping electro cool but winds up looking more like a Gap ad gone horribly awry, Lupe Fiasco is neither a po-faced classicist nor a Beans inspired ‘80s revisionist. Instead, Lupe Fiasco's Food and Liquor provides an album's worth of grandiose, soul steeped beats and skillfully elliptical lyrical virtuosity. Those looking for more of the breathless, Escobar inspired flow that won Fiasco a key spot on Kanye’s storming “Touch the Sky” will not be disappointed. And though Fiasco occasionally reverts to awkward platitudes, for the most part he remains as lyrically inventive as he is technically gifted. Fiasco is equally capable of delivering incisive political observations (“American Terrorist”) and scabrous commentary on the state of the Hip-Hop nation, but Lupe is at his best when spitting boy’s eye view coming of age narratives that blend the expansive ambitions of adolescence with the gritty texture of everyday life.

This Is "Good" Hip Hop

Lupe Faisco is not a rapper infatuated with rapping about weed, hoes, and selling coke or making crack, it's a nice change to listen to excellent lyrics about the struggle but in a different way. The only complaint I had was the beats are pretty similar to each other. But over all a great effort.

Lupe's Done It

I Was getting worried about hip-hop for a minute there. If you want real talk. Food & Liquor is the album for you

Fresh for Sure

Alright, he won me over with the Grateful Dead referance. But seriously, this album is excellent on a very high quality level. Kick, Push hits close to home somehow, and Daydreamin' explores places that few rappers have dared to go. The whole album is easy to relate to, even when you're a white suburban kid. For a hip-hop novice I am thoroughly impressed. Listening to Lupe Fiasco makes me feel better about the direction that rap is headed in and gives me hope. It inspires me to search out new artists and rappers. That is essentially the tellings of a great album.

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...
