Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor
Having stepped into the spotlight on Kanye West’s “Touch the Sky,” Lupe Fiasco fully crystallizes his fresh, soulful brand of sociopolitical hip-hop. Food & Liquor showcases the rising Chi-Town star’s masterful blend of cutting lyrics and unconventional muses. Take the brash, brassy bluster of “Kick, Push,” which follows a young man’s relationship with his skateboard, while “The Instrumental” examines the specter of TV addiction. Elsewhere, the unapologetic ”American Terrorist" sees Fiasco discussing the misconceptions of Islam in America.
