One of the best debut hip-hop albums of the last years, Fiasco's Food & Liquor is exciting, fun and smart. Lupe has some great sampling and lyrics as well as some truly innovative music.

In a time where all good hip.hop things seem to be coming from the south Lupe shows us some great West Coast (Chicago) hip-hop, and gives us what will for a long time probably be the best skating hip-hop track with Kick, Push. A really catchy and quite brilliant track.

So finally a hip-hop album which harks back to an earlier time of great West Coast hip-hop and manages to do something new at the same time. I really like this and am definitely adding it to my iPod.
