Lupe Fiasco - Mural


One week after the album's release, the verdict is in: Tetsuo & Youth represents Lupe Fiasco's return to the heights of his early career. That means that, like Food & Liquor and The Cool, the project is solid all the way through—but we'll still go out on a limb and call Mural a standout track. On this record The Buchanans' airy vocal samples and tense keys back the Windy City heavyweight's tightly-wound commentary on everything from sexism, to hot dogs, to the importance of caring for your vocal chords.
