Album · 2012 · 19 Songs. Nearly six years ago, a skater kid from Chicago made his solo debut with the excellent Food and Liquor and created a bona fide manifesto that spoke to socially conscious ’80s babies. Now, with the release of Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, Fiasco reveals the extent of his evolution. 1 (Deluxe Version) Lupe Fiasco. Listen on Apple Music.

His new album is called Food & Liquor II, overtly promising a return to his first and still best-loved album, and most of its production comes courtesy of his old standbys (Soundtrakk, 1500 or Nothin'). Save for the usual nu-metal hard-rock vocalizing on many of the choruses, it is his most relaxed, rewarding effort in a while, and at its best, it feels like a re-introduction to a promising artist who spent some time in the wilderness. At its worst, it's plagued by the same empty cleverness and strident moralizing that has always dragged down Lupe's music

As that album was in limbo, Fiasco began working on his confusingly titled fourth album, a 69-minute "part one" of a sequel to his 2006 debut. It's most certainly not a Lasers sequel. There's no obvious attempt to repeat earlier pop chart successes, and its introduction is indicative, similar to that of 2007's elaborately conceptual The Cool, with Fiasco's sister Ayesha Jaco contributing some more of her commanding poetry.

  • To cut a long story short: Lupe Fiasco's "Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1" is the perfect contemporary hip hop album of the 2010s. While not technically a sequel to his similarly titled debut, this record not only continues the strong and meaningful narrative of his previous albums, but takes it to a whole new level.It's a gifted poet's view on a "stark raving (and star craving) mad" world, spreading his idealistic thoughts all over a place that seemed to have lost its love, common sense and moral, and through provoking and most wonderful lyricism tries to wake them up from their ethical hiatus.Hip hop in the 2010s is pretty much a different game than it was back when it became big. Gangsta rap is predominantly considered a classic genre, but out dated on modern day standards, whilst recent big names like Kanye West and Nicki Minaj are tip toeing into a more tolerant and liberal direction, and stars like Lil Wayne and Big Sean are busy spitting witty puns and clever word play instead of gritty street life. Rap music has grown a fun genre and sure is heading in the right direction on modern day standards. But that is not enough for Lupe. He wants more. He sees rappers praying to "Lamborghini Angels" or demanding women to be "Bad B*tches". And even feels he has to ask god for mercy when making music that normal people wouldn't consider shallow in the least.The album contains some of the greatest hip hop music of the on-going decade. On the synth-heavy "B*tch Bad", he tells the story of two youngsters who get exposed to the bad b-word in two different contexts, that should change their opinion in what women should look and behave like. Their conceptions are high in contrast, ranging from a quasi-ptostitute to a complete virgin - you can imagine the chaos when they eventually meet each other.The melodious and beautifully produced "Unforgivable Youth" focuses on the mistakes made in the history of America, starting off with the conquest of the continent and the bloodshed among the way in the first verse, skipping a few chapters before continuing with the issue of slavery in the second verse, leading to a haunting and ironic conclusion in the third one.On the catchy "Around My Way" and "Lamborghini Angels", Fiasco uses sharp tongued lyrics over earworm uptempo beats to remind us that, despite the light hearted media coverage of things, the world still isn't entirely fixed.Yes, there are parts where Lupe Fiasco is on the edge of exaggerating (is the fact of planned obsolescence really that shocking?), but all in all, "Food & Liquor II" is a masterpiece of conscious hip hop. It has wonderful lyricism, touches important topics, is perfectly produced and knows how to deliver its sometimes radical, sometimes subtle subject matter. It is what I would call an instant classic.
