Listen to Me - Lupe Fiasco

This 24 year old Chicago native has been labeled more of a skateboarding, internet dork than a rapper, but his recently released debut album, "Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor," is getting a lot of attention. Having worked with artists such as Kanye West and Fort Minor on past works, Lupe's industry street cred is starting to seep into the mainstream.

One critic described it by saying, “If you want to feed your mind, there is plenty of intellectualism, and if you just want something that sounds good, it’s got that too. This album caters to people from all walks of life...”

Have a listen...

Buy his album
See him perform

He was featured on one of MTV's channels, something up in the 400s, I think. I really liked it and I've been turned off by mainstream hip hop these days. Reminded me of old Tribe.
