iTunes 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.

Customer Reviews

Hip Hop is alive

Dette album er i en klasse for sig selv, og enhver "ægte" Hip-hop fan bør anskaffe sig dette album! Hvis du bare vil have en smagsprøve på hvad du har i vente, så vil jeg råde en til at købe sangen "Hi-Definition" da det er en absolut perle :) Lupe Fiaco er et naturtalent, man sjældent ser. Enjoy!

Fantastisk album!

Lupe Fiasco gør det igen! Hans første album er noget af det bedste jeg nogensinde har hørt, og selvom denne plade dog ikke er lige så god, er den absolut godkendt. Derudover er det godt at se den allerede nu er populær på iTunes Music Store (DK), og ikke bare et nummer som hans sidste plade, i form af Kick/Push.


Havde regnet med en MEGET bedre plade fra Lupe.. Kan slet ikke måle sig med hans første, der er et par gode sange på, men ikke noget særligt


Born: 17 February 1982 in Chicago, IL

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s, '10s

One of the most cerebral and enigmatic rappers active since the mid-2000s, Lupe Fiasco is also among the most prominent artists in his field, as proved by Grammy recognition and several gold and platinum certifications. The Chicago-based MC, 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,...
