Muze PNote Building on the success of his acclaimed debut, FOOD & LIQUOR, Chi-town representative Lupe Fiasco returns with a concept-themed record, THE COOL. Evenly balancing intelligent lyricism, poetic symbolism, and catchy pop-themed production, Lupe's sophomore effort partially follows the story of the ghetto Everyman, the Cool, in his ever-changing relationship with the Streets and the Game. Still, it's not all high-concept here. Lupe also celebrates the spoils of superstar glamour on the catchy single, "Superstar," and the travel-fantasy track, "Paris, Tokyo," and enters more experimental territory with the help of British trip-hop act, U.N.K.L.E. on "Hello/Goodbye (Uncool)." THE COOL features production work from Soundtrakk, Chris & Drop, Patrick Stump, and Chris Goss, among others, as well as guest appearances by Sarah Green, GemStones, Pooh Bear, Nikki Jean, Bishop G, Graham Burris, Unkle, Matthew Santos, and Snoop Dogg.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.62)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "THE COOL goes for softer, jazzier R&B hooks, yet the lyrics are even tougher in their street-level attack on hip-hop materialism."

Spin (p.105)
- 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The beats pulsate rather than bang, Lupe's voice dances in and out of shadows..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.75)
- "Fiasco's wide-ranging pop instincts rarely fail him....It turns out randomness makes for a surprisingly unifying concept." -- Grade: A-

Q (Magazine)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his doesn't disappoint, adding emotional depth to his complex rhyming and heft to the productions..."
