Description

Released to extensive critical lauding and media embrace in September of 2006, Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor (executive produced by good friend, and one-time mentor, Jay-Z) set the stage and featured the singles ‘Kick Push’, ‘Daydreamin’ and ‘I Gotcha’.

Lupe also landed a remarkable three Grammy nominations – including Best Rap Album, and Best Rap Solo Performance and Best Rap Song for “Kick Push.”

Now Fiasco has returned with his second offering, Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool. A largely conceptual tour -de-force, the album’s title is inspired by a standout track from Fiasco’s debut, a hustler-turned-zombie epic also called “The Cool.”

This time around, Fiasco introduces three new characters – Michael Young History (The Cool before his death), The Game (a male personification of a hustler’s damaging influences), and The Streets (a female embodiment of an urban area’s corrupt allure).

Primarily produced by Soundtrakk, ‘The Cool’ also features contributions from a diverse array of atypical instrumentalists including Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump, Mike Shinoda, The Neptunes, UNKLE & Snoop Dogg.
