FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Lupe Fiasco — The Cool

To this day, this is one of the most beautifully crafted hip-hop tracks I have ever heard.  Lupe Fiasco’s storytelling abilities truly shine on The Cool, taking us through a recently-shot man’s experience as he views the world from a new perspective (as the living dead).  The man walks through his old “hood” and observes the stereotypical reality of what got him killed in the first place.  A masterpiece.  Enjoy the weekend!
