He should switch genres to alternative....then he could sell because his work has more of an Alternative HIPHOP feeling which makes him different...Once more artists become of this nature..his work will be cherished...He is a true poet.

This album may be considered a classic towards kids who were born in the 90's and up...but to the more advanced 80's listener...this album has classics songs don't get me wrong...However, the album doesn't play through...and if you say it does..your trying to hard...you muthafu*kas can't tell me that you know what the fu*k he's talking about every song..Nor argue that this a better album than American Gangster, Finding Forever, Ear Drum, Undergroundkingz, M.A.D.E, Free At Last, or ever Graduation...thats the reason why the music sells have declined...because everyones likings of hiphop are different nowadays...this isn't bad..especially not compared to Soulja boy...lol...but now hiphop can branch into new alternative genres..and the few people that accept it..will continue to ride for it...so I give this album a 3.5/5....

You can't label an album like this towards those born in a certain time period. I was born in the early 80's and I'm not going to say its a classic because it leaked today, but I will say its unbelievable. And yes I think it plays through very well. And you cannot compare it to albums such as UGK or M.A.D.E because as you said, The Cool is a very different style of music from a lot of hip hop. You really cannot compare it to anything out there, and we should not be, even to his last album. We should take it for what it is, a highly complex and lyrical and musical accomplishment.

Don't rate the album based on comparisons to 80's music because it does not warrant that type of comparison at all.

this album will def take me multiple listens to rate...concept wise it's ridiculous and the album does flow well from track 2 track...it's so rich and deep with substance that some of the tracks are flying over my head, that's why i gotta take multiple listens...superb album nonetheless

Beats are 5/5. . lyrics are real good too maybe 5/5 as well. .but i still am not a big fan of lupe. .i know hes nice as fu*k. .but it's still hard for me to listen to him for some reason maybe its his voice or his subject matter. .i feel like you put jay or nas on these beats and id listen to it more. .

But my fav tracks gotta be

Go go gaget flow
High definition
The Coolest
Hip hop saved my life
Intruder Alert
Little Weapon
The Die
Put you on game
Go baby
Put you on game


As i said. .hott a.ss album. .but im still not a huge lupe fan and i prolly wont listen to this a lot

i'll say 4/4.5 right now becuase there were a few tracks i couldn't get into but that could change with time.
