Ok, I'm trying to get all of the concept songs about the Characters on one disc. I want it for myself and to play for my boy who is still sleeping on Lupe. I want to see if I have all the songs.

Pills-describes the streets and the game characters
He Say/She Say-the litte boy "The Cool" that explains his childhood
The Cool-Explains the resurrection of the cool and his second death

2nd album
The Coolest-The rise of the cool character
Streets on Fire-A song about the streets character
The Die-The death (first) of the Cool
Put You on Game-A song about the Game character

Am I missing anything? In every interview that I have seen, Lupe has said there are 5 songs throughout the album that fall within the concept. I'm pretty sure about these 4. What would the other one be? Are there any other songs about the concept cause he also said there are song mixtape songs that refer to the Cool characters. When I compile all the songs I'ma try to put it in some kind of chronological order. Any suggestions?

Dumb It Down is probably one of the most lyrical tracks I've ever heard.

If U can understand the sh*t he is talking about u would probably agree with me.

I sat there and analyzed the everything he was sayin and it mad mad sense. But for the dumb closed minded ppl...they wouldnt even like it let alone understand it...alot of the terms he was spittin are not often used so many ppl dont know what hes talkin about..


This album is Classic IMO:applause:...not to mention how much work he put into it.

Lupe...this n*gga is not from this planet I swear why is he not the biggest thinkg in hip-hop the cool is on another level. He completly flipped that sh*t from Food&Liquior. The still incorparating the whole Michael Young story line is amazing. The same lil boy from he say she say is the "Cool" then Michael Young(The Cool) dies on that track Die Lupe my n*gga this album is serious dudes a problem I wish much sucess

incredible stuff. Listened to this album 2 weeks straight while riding on the bus to work. The focus and thought process to his wordplay is just amazing. as well as the sound he picks for his tracks.

I've been letting this one marinate for a minute. I'd say at the moment (given it's only a month or so old), I'd give it a 4/5. Lyric Wise, the album is a 5/5. Production wise, it is 3.75/5.

Stand out tracks were Dumb It Down, Superstar, Gold Watch, Paris/Tokyo, The Coolest, Hip Hop has Saved My Life, Intruder Alert and a few others.

I had to hit the replay button the first time I heard The Coolest.

This is probably my favorite hip-hop album of the year (though I feel the American Gangster is a more competent album, production wise and how it flows).

I'm sad to hear there is only one more solo album for this gifted young man.
