4.5 Food and liquor 2 The Great American Rap Album part one. Dannyboyy | 22/09/2012 | See all Dannyboyy's reviews (59) After Food and Liquor, The cool, Lasers and now this beautiful masterpiece. I can honestly say Lupe has cemented his place as one of the g.o.a.t's of Hiphop. He has definitely earned the right to compare himself as one of the greatest and walk amongst them. The beats overall are all totally unique and soulful in other words proper Hiphop beats. Obviously one of the beats is a sample of Pete rock's and C.L smooth's Troy. Now for the lyrics this is the most lyrical album since Nas's. He touches on alot of relevent topics, and the production is amazing. Lupe is at his best if your new to Lupe this would be a good time to start listening to his music. The album isnt huge on big name features but who he does feature are surprisingly good. This definitely isnt your typical commercialised rap album where rappers just rap about meaningless rubbish to put it simply This is the great American rap album. Lupe please carry on doing what you do cause you do it so well. youve already left us a legacy please don't retire.
