GoGetterCertified - The Cool
The Cool is the second studio album by Lupe Fiasco. It will be dropping tomorrow, December 18, 2007 in the United States and January 14, 2008 in the United Kingdom (sorry for the delay to my Chicas in the UK). The Cool is Lupe's first concept album, based on a song from his debut album Food & Liquor of the same name. The album features production from Soundtrakk, Unkle, and Patrick Stump, among others. Guest appearances include, but are not limited to, GemStones, Snoop Dogg, and Matthew Santos.
I've had a private listen of the album and am definitely IMPRESSED. Not too many sophomores hit a home run, but Lupe stays true to his beliefs and convictions and does not disappoint. He also continues to proudly represent Chicago with witty mentions of the city of wind on several of the album's tracks.
