"Lupe Fiasco - Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1"

Don't lock, we need an official album post. The lp is coming out in about a month and by the looks of it, everyone will be talking about it. You can hate all you want on his hair or his lack of Tribe love but no one is going to give you radio hits and lyricism simultaneously like Lupe.

He had a listening session last night, here are some excerpts from The Village Voice's write-up (http://blogs.villagevoice.com/music/2012/08/lupe_fiasco_food_liquor_2.php?page=2)

Specifically for the Lesson:
"The album will be evenly split between songs based around concepts and songs that, as Lupe put it, are just straight up "rappity rap rap" songs. The latter includes "Form Follows Function," which he declared a "masterpiece" and features him rhyming over a groove that a little disconcertingly veers towards the smooth jazz side. The song also includes Lupe confessing how he's "been in a stew all day cooking food for thought"a process that he flipped into "sushi for the soul." (We're not in Bronson territory here, chowhounds.)"

On any special guests:
"Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Part One will be a totally guest-free experience. But it's a situation that happened by circumstance, not design. As Lupe explained, there was simply no one else around in the studio while he was recording it: "Blu was asleep, Kendrick Lamar's in Asia."

On the overall concept:
Talking about the overriding concept behind Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Part One, Lupe called it his attempt to write a bunch of "songs about America songs about hip-hop." The recording process, he added, was part of his attempt to "figure out America."

this literally salvaged the album for me.

ive had very little interest so far. all of the songs released have been decent, but he comes off very pretentious. and the production has been sort of bland. but soundtrakk (and the underrated 1500 or nothing) could make this worthwhile

It's funny, those were my choices for that supergroup post, knowing no one is trying to work w Lupe or Blu at this point.

Nah, I'm sure its because that bullshit was thrown on the album this week and the interview was done weeks ago.

Lupe mentions that Guy Sebastien and Pooh Bear are on the album. I assume the "no features" thing references people of interest.

He is entitled to feel anyway he wants and state this to the masses in whatever way he wants. However, I feel it's as completely irresponsible as Killer Mike's similar stance on voting.

People get up early as listen to these artists. It might be all they have to keep them going. They hang on every word that these artists provide in interviews. For someone to say I'm not voting because of these reasons and then end their statement with some variation of it's pointless and both parties are the same is reckless and irresponsible.
Lupe has history of providing a positive message but he's off base at times and cannot articulate message in a concise form. When he spoke to kids at the Chicago school made similarly reckless statements. Instead of telling kids to stay in school he went off on some other shit. He could've set someone back years with that reckless talk.

I got no beef with him as artist and he is entitled to his opinions. However, people listen to those opinions like they gospel and follow through on them. I just wish he'd think about the ramifications of his statements on young people's lives before he made them.

Other rappers come in and at least stay on whatever message they're assigned to discuss.

He spoke to students and (I'm paraphrasing) said you don't need school but real knowledge. That's a fucked up thing to say because all of those niggas need school. School represents an opportunity to gain knowledge and advance yourself. I get his point. However, what's wrong with telling kids to stay in school?

"strange fruition", "how dare you" and "form follows function" are the highlights for me, and probably the only songs without an intolerable beat and/or hook.

the mock-industry beat worked on "bitch bad" but an album full of 'em? eh...

That track actually sounds like something off of Bilal's "First Born Second" Album, which is pretty dope.

44. "Ok. This album is WAY better than I expected."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

It's not perfect, it's definitely flawed. But it's good. Leagues better than Lasers.

The mixing on this album might be the highlight after my first listen. It's very... cushy. The beats feel like... sitting in an overstuffed recliner or... putting on that bubble goose down winter coat. That's not to say the beats are great, but they sound so... full.

There's several very good tracks on here, which was interesting, because most of the song intros had me cringing. Lupe's rapping. No one has ever doubted that Lu RAPS.

There is one, TERRIBLE song. Battle Scars. I couldn't make it through that one. The hook on Unforgivable Youth is also terrible, but when throughout the verses, the song is kinda dope. The Heart Donor hook is pretty weak too, as is Brave Heart. The rest of the song pretty much makes up for that in Brave Heart at least. Heart Donor is meh.

The beats are for the most part, very commercial. I would like something more... hip hoppy, but the beats aren't bad. Some of them are quite good even. There are way too many vocal effects throughout the album, too much adlibbing from Lupe, and he talks entirely too much. But that's all tolerable to me.

Form Follows Function, Cold War (despite the odd hook), Strange Fruition, and Hood Now are highlights, I would say.

After 1 listen, I give it a 3.75/5. Trimming the far a little -- Battle Scars, after a few more listens I'll be able to better pair it album down to the strongest 12-13 tracks.

Stronger recovery from the bullshit that Lasers was, even if it still does suffer from some weak hooks.

HE did that for the label..that was that Guy dude song and it blew up overseas so the label made him put it on there to help with sales..cause besides that bilal song ain't really no "single" on here.

This shit banging..you right battle scars stand out like a mofo but the rest is good to great.

Hood Now might be my favorite track

Form Follows Function, nice music but I guess I wasn't listening to the lyrics cuz that shit bout put me to sleep

Audubon Ballroom is hilarious to me, that hook had me laughing.

Strange Fruition knocks

How Dare You knocks

Cold War Knocks

then the rest either got bad hooks or bad beats, or not bad but just mismatched.

One thing for sure he's rapping his ass off on this joint. Word play is so damn sharp. Some decent joint, hooks are abit ehh and production is decent overall. Not bad on first listen anyway.

Just needs to work on his beat selection and focus on making a consistent msg. It's not surprising that he looks up to Nas a lot b/c they both have the same problem but both greatly talented. Both have managed to stay relevant despite what their worst critics say or have you think.

the album has grown on me. I still haven't had time to sit down and really listen, but I think I'll appreciate it more once I do.

When I first heard the album I thought it was okay, but now I'm like "this shit is actually pretty good."

I still can't get into Heart Donor, How Dare You, or Battle Scars. Everything else on it is cool, though.

I like it on the first listen but I know this is something that will get better with time I do like Heart Donor but agree I am not feeling those other tracks It sort of feels like he did the hardcore militant stuff at the beginning and then did the commercial stuff for a minute before returning to the hardcore again All I say is that this is not Lasers thank Allah

Exactly. Makes the middle feel kind of out of place. Especially considering what he was saying about the album before it came out. Those tracks really felt like compromise. Especially with them all sitting together like that.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I'm surprised it's not getting more acclaim... track 1-8 the word classic was imprinted in my brain, but it doesn't stay AS good, it stays good, but if he only kept a few of the later tracks and made this album like 11 songs it could have been a legit classic... (ie. 1-8, then keep form follows function, cold war, and hood now) not that the other songs are bad (minus battle scar)

I have to c how it plays overtime but as of now I give this like a 8 or 9 out of 10

He easily is top 5 as a rapper, but the flows, hooks, beat selection, all completely on point here... def gets a pass for Lasers. Have always liked beats from 1500 or nothin', they gave him some heat for this

Their review pretty much said that other than "Heart Donor" the lyrics is top-notch but the beats are lacking. So picture if he released the acapellas to this album? I think someone could make some crazy shit with this album...like a trap version or a lasers-ish electro mix or a bunch of Springsteen flips (like Great American American Rap Album).

...too bad hip-hop doesn't do remixes anymore, unlesss there all-star posse cuts.

that very reason (i'd LOVE to see what various beatsmiths like myself could do with this)

that being said, let me clearly state that i like the production on this album more than a lot of people. Do i think it could overall be a bit stronger? perhaps, and i def want to hear this album spun a thousand different ways since the rapping is so strong, but i do enjoy the music already.

I absolutely LOVE the production on Cold War, also really dig the sound of Strange Fruition, to name a couple. Form Follows Function is another enjoyable track musically.

this album is fucking dope, put it to the road test and really the only shits I skip are Battle Scars, Brave Heart, and Unforgivable Youth.

I'm surprised I started liking Heart Donor.

now I just need Lamar, Wiz, and Big Boi to make good.

"battle scars" and "heart donor" are among the small group that i have yet to come around to i think...and with Heart Donor, my immediate impression was (and remains) "there's something to this, but its gonna have to grow on me". The beat and sound is really unique for a hiphop track imo.

But Unforgivable Youth might just be my lyrical favorite on the album (there are some other tracks that i probably love overall a little more)

Also, I actually love the hook on Brave Heart

gotta echo O_E's an other's sentiments. This dude is just nice when he wants to be, and when he isn't making a straight up pop album. He's just a great "rapper". When he makes a song, he makes a fucking song all the way through. Rhymes, Flows, Hook, beat, they all fit, theres a message, it isn't contrived, its original, he's just got so much prowess with it. Now the album isn't touching The Cool by any means, but thats because it doesn't have any slam dunk bangers, but that album also was played to death by me so we'll see. Also the fact that the song that stood out most to me and had the most fun jamming was the T.R.O.Y Reinterpretation, but i dont think thats a bad thing, as theres been many songs that have been great that are just rehashings of classic beats, and he did it justice I think.


Anyway, i think it deserves more listens, but i dont get the hate on the beats. Beats are fine, his hooks are fine, everything here is SOLID. This might be the most above average rap album that came out so far this year to me after a few more listens. It's not making my dick hard, buts its definatel got me saying "yup, dope, yup, thats how you do it" alot.

Too bad he hates Israel *le sigh*

Ital, Put Em Up and Hood Now are my favourite songs. Around My Way sounds very out of place, it should've been a bonus track imo. Battle Scars isn't on the Aussie version of the album ironically (guess they want Guy's album to do BIG numbers), so the middle section isn't too bad here. Pretty good album overall.

this album may be his most cohesive and fully actualized effort. the cool had more "stand out" songs but far more skippers as well.

I've a lupe fan, and for some reason, this album was not on my radar at the time it dropped and then I picked up with lupe post this album.


My god, if this album dropped this week, it would make the pusha, kanye, etc etc look like chump change records.

This album is dopeness front to back. Glad I never really listened, cause its like I have a brand new lupe album to bump

But not as big of a Lupe fan. Purchased the album and literally didn't listen to it for 3 years! Then one day I throw it on in the car and was like 'fuck!, this album is dope, what was I thinking!'. Surprisingly good. Not classic, but a really good album. The execution and production is top notch.

I am currently checking a way older album from a different artist. Just got around to listening to Masta Ace's 'Disposable Arts' album and I am enjoying the hell out of it. Dope concept album. Loving the rhymes. And production is solid. Just downloaded 'Long Hot Summer' and plan to listen later on during the week.
