Will The Cool, the second album from Lupe Fiasco, do what his first couldn’t and make this Chicago rap prodigy a star? If the answer must be no, maybe it’s just because Lupe’s too far ahead of the competition. The Cool gets off to a bit of a bumpy start--"Go Go Gadget Flow" shows off Lupe’s quick-lips vocal talents, but it’s a bit slight content-wise, while "Superstar" reaches for the crossover card through its somewhat hammy sub-Chris Martin vocal from Matthew Santos. A little further in, though, and Lupe’s firing on all cylinders. "Dumb It Down" outdoes Pharrell at his own game, droning synths and ticking drums atop which Lupe dissects an industry built on low expectations. "Hello/Goodbye" shows the breadth of The Cool’s scope, borrowing a doom-laden hook from James Lavelle’s UNKLE project. And "Little Weapon", produced by Patrick Stump from Fall Out Boy, surprises; a pneumatic, enjoyable production that’s the bed for a narrative that sees Lupe morphed into the body of a child solider-–although a surprise pull-back at the end suggests it might be about violent computer games. Maybe it’s too fragmented to vault Lupe into the league of Kanye and Jay-Z--or maybe The Cool is simply too original and too inspired to resort to hip-hop cliché. –-Louis Pattison

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Ashley A. Williams on 28 Jan. 2008
Format: Audio CD
Without doubt Lupe Fiasco's 'Food & Liquor'album was a prelude to one of hip hops most important and possibly influental artists since Kanye West and Common. With 'The Cool' Lupe confirms that he is head and shoulders above all competitors when it comes to lyrics and story telling. 'The Cool' is an album unlike any other, its light years ahead in fact! and in my opinion will spark a copy cat trend amoung other artists. Make no mistake about this, you need to own this album. Track after track of perfectly rounded beats and lyrical delivery shows the world that Hip hop's future is destined to be shaped by artists such as Lupe who's use of experimental concepts is the way forward. Unfortunatly for Lupe and in the case of this album 'The Cool' with not have the commerical impact that he or it deserves, Why? well much like 'Food & Liquor' this album is almost too fresh and ahead of its time for mainstream hip hop lovers to fully appreciate. My guess is that in 10 years time your Children with be downloading this album as they'll want to hear who started the new sound of hip hop. My advice to you? buy and listen to this album NOW and save yourself the ten year wait to love it!

Hip Hop is now an overly abused, commercially generated machine, full of "gangstas" clicking their fingers and doing the soulja boy. There are still many artists within hip hop to keep me interested in the genre, but there are many artists which claim themselves to be hip hop and it is an all too familiar burden within the scence. This is where Lupe Fiasco steps in, muslim born "Wasalu Muhammad Jaco" releases his much anticipated 2nd album, the cool, and what an album it is. Most of the production being dealt with by in house 1st & 15th producer soundtrakk, who proudly has his name as the producer of the smash single "Superstar" but also, along with the lead single and the street single "Dumb it down" the album is truly brilliant. The 1st full track, "Go go gadget flow" is truly infectious, with Lupe rapping extremely fast and the words just roll off his tongue, this chorus will be stuck in your head all day. I'm not going to drag out this review all day, but i can safely reccomend this album to anyone, hip hop head or not. I don't care if your one of the minority metal heads who enjoy writing stupid negative reviews on some of the greatest hip hop albums in history, while of course having your own respected musical intrests, or even an indie head rocking away. Seriously consider making this album the next in all of your respected music collections. I mean, anyone who can make a song from the perspective of a cheeseburger, as Lupe sublimely does, and pull it off perfectly in the song "gotta eat" deserves some sort of credit, the guy is educated and knows what he is talking about. "The Coolest N.... What?

There has been a decline in great rappers the last few years.But Lupe fiasco i say can rank up there with Nas,GZA and Common in his second album "The Cool" there are some classics here such as the obviously brilliant"Superstar" High definition with Snoop Dogg is my favorite on this album.Hip Hop Saved my life how true this album looks like it has saved Hip Hop.But you notice a mood change.According to the singles we have heard in the past Lupe Fiasco aint as clean cut as we think rapping about Shoting someone in the back and Mac 11 refenes change your outlook on him.All in all classic stuff

Been a fan of Lupe Fiasco since Food and Liquor dropped and he's done something not many have been capable of- make an album even better than their already great previous album
The Cool does not have one bad song, mixed with Lupe's pretty much perfect and extremely clever lyrics and the smooth beats makes for a really impressive album which deserves to be put in to the ranks of a Hip-Hop classic, something that is extremely rare in the US now with the fall in the quality of the genre
Lupe Fiasco is one who shows that you don't have to talk about guns, drugs, looking at women with a derogatory view etc. and still make a mind-blowing Hip-Hop album
Lupe is one of the only rappers in the US who is just about keeping Hip-Hop alive over there and it is a great pity that he is apparently going to quit after his third album
Any fan of the genre cannot miss this album and those who don't like it are probably the ones who listen to the terrible songs labelled as Hip-Hop which is killing the dying genre
Also need to say that Lupe is one of those artists that has lyrics where you will keep finding out different things the more you listen and carries on that tradition on this album

After Food and Liquor, it was perhaps forgivable to expect a lot from lupe fiasco. after all, his first album caused mass hysteria in the inner circles of hip hop, as well as doing well commercially. traditionally, successful debut albums are followed up with the expectation of raising their game; which is sometimes difficult when your first album is your very best work! Its no coincidence that Jay-z, Nas, Common, Kanye West are all judged by their first albums.

On first listen, you may think this is another one of those hyped up albums, all show and no go. I certainly did. On first listen I only listened to a few of the song fully. After a few days i came back to it, and found that there are some really thoughtful, precise songs. I think perhaps this is because the lyrics are often complex and metaphorical, which means they take time and effort to think about, and to absorb. I had a similar experience with Illmatic, taking perhaps two months to realise its greatness. It may be a cliche, but this is a grower. Even now, 2 months after purchasing The Cool, i still come back to it and find something new, which is a sign of greatness.

If you are a fan of real hip-hop, or like artists such as Common, Jay-z, Nas, Talib Kweli, Kanye West, Mobb Deep etc, then you really will like Lupe Fiasco.

If at first you perhaps don't rate the album, leave it and then come back and really listen to the lyrics. A little patience will reap great rewards!

Some tracks to look forward to;

1) The Coolest
2) Hi-defination
3) Hip-Hop saved my life
4) The Die
5) Go baby.
