Lupe Fiasco - The Coolest

Posted 8 years ago
Producer:
Chris & Drop
Album:
The Cool

Children are often influenced by what they deem as “cool.”  While they may not be sure exactly why something is cool it doesn’t really matter; the end result is in the inquiry.  On Lupe Fiasco’s sophomore album, The Cool, the Muslim-American MC tackles a variety of stereotypical ‘characters,’ each who suffer from the results of damaging urban influences.  The Coolest finds Lupe explaining all the life-decisions he has made in an effort to be cool, then proclaims that nothing he has done make him “the coolest nigga.”  Over dark piano notes from producers Chris and Drop, Fiasco does the opposite of Dumb It Down and lyrically drives his message in deep.  The oft-delayed, The Cool, should finally be available on December 18th.
