lupe_fiascos_the_cool.jpg

Too early to tell, but I’m thinking The Cool might almost live up to the high praise Dart Adams and The Rap Up have thrown at it. It’s not album of the year good, but it’s good. Maybe great. As for “Paris, Tokyo?” It’d certainly be in my top 10 if I were going to do it again. It kind of sounds like a lost outtake from Midnight Marauders. (Even though Lupe would probably tell you it was inspired by Eightball & MJG)
