Lupe Fiasco - "Kick, Push"

"For a guy who spends a few dozen bars on "I Gotcha" telling us how great he smells, Lupe Fiasco certainly seemed bummed by the time (the album) "Food & Liquor" dropped. On the lush single "Kick, Push", he was skateboarding for fun; but by the time the sequel, "Kick, Push II" rolled around, his deck was a meanof running away from a chaotic home life, and there was a void nipping at his heels. It looked like Lupe was going to be the next Jay Z, but he turned out to be the hip-hop Morrissey, which is exactly what the genre needs." (Spin)

Será que, depois de The Streets e De La Soul, o meu coração tem espaço para mais um artista Hip Hop? Fiquei curioso em relação a este álbum, considerado 2oº melhor álbum de 2006 pela revista Spin.
