Editors’ Notes

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.

Simply Brilliant

Lupe in my opinion is what hip-hop needs rigth now. I breath of air to rap fans. This is an incredible cd. With production from Jay-Z, Chill, Soundtrack, and Lupe. In 10 years from now, I have a feeling we'll be talking on how much this cd was a classic, just like we're still talking about Illmatic. Lupe knows real hip-hop. He's commercial, but his raps are not, like Tupac did it. I like that. I say even if you are in the public eye, that should not change your musical style. 2 words, Pure Classic My favorite songs: Kick Push Kick Push II He Say She Say Daydreamin' The Cool Pressure GO out and get this. You will be very happy you did so.


This album is great from start to finish! There is something about Lupe Fiascos' style of music that hooked me all the way through the album. This album is the only thing I'm playing on my iPod at the minute!

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...
