We caught up with the fantastic Mr. Fiasco in London to talk about his new album 'The Cool' featuring singles ' Super Star' and 'Paris/Tokyo' Lupe also talks about his secret new project with Kanye West and Pharrell Williams.
Lupe Fiasco, born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco, trail-blazed his path to critical acclaim last year when he released his Atlantic Records debut, Lupe Fiascoâs Food & Liquor Exec-produced by Jay Z. Possessing head-spinning wordplay and a topical range more akin to the underground than the mainstream, the 25-year-old lyricist proved that talent can still make waves in the rap game.
In Hip-Hopâs popularity contest, Lupe Fiasco is the observer, a thinking man brave enough to dictate the acute thoughts that his peers ignore. Now, that is cool.
