Today marks the 10 year anniversary of Lupe Fiasco’s seminal debut, Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor. Hard to believe, right? 10 years has flown by, and today Lu took the time to share his thoughts on F&L 10 years later. He even drops an exclusive track at the very end.
F&L was an influential album that kicked off an esteemed career for Lu, after dropping a slew of unforgettable mixtapes. I remember interest in Lu was so high after he appeared on Kanye’s “Touch The Sky,” and he delivered with his debut despite the heavy bootlegging. It was a moment in time that was perfectly captured here — from the lyrics to the beats (Pro, Trakk, Neptunes, Kanye). Lupe can still outrap your favorite rapper, and that’s a fact.
I maintain that the leaked version of F&L is the best version of F&L, but both are classics, imo.Andrew Barber 0
