A more cohesive album yes but definitely not better than FnL.
Hmmm let's compare these albums; I like to rate albums on 5 things

Lyrics - I'll give the edge to Lupe

Hooks - I'll give it to Kendrick; bi*ch dont k!ll my vibe/Money Trees/

Content - I'll give the edge to Lupe

Beats - idk, neither one of them had 'mind blowing' production but the production fits and both are good, but i'll give the nod to Kendrick

Cohesiveness/album flow - I'll give it to Kendrick


So i think they're close; so if you think Lupe's lyrical skill and content outweighs those things then Food and Liquor is better, which you can make a case for... If Food and Liquor could of cleared the samples for 'Theme Music To A Drive By' and 'Hustlaz Song' then Food and Liquor would have been even on a higher pedestal imo, wouldnt even be debatable

Lupe. I gotta hear more(albums, not fu*king throwaway tracks on mixtapes that kids now get so hyped about) from Kendrick before I can really look at this as being a good discussion.

As of right now, Cole got an uphill climb to be included in the conversation. He a storyteller, but his other attributes are laughable compared to that man Lupe.

3 years ago i would say lupe, but mr walu time is up, he did more yip yapping outside the booth then inside the booth

kendrick lamar is the future IF he can stay consistent, theres always that sophmore slump......j.cole is nice but imo he dont have star appeal, then again, neiter dud lupe, right now everyone is rooting for kendrick

Exactly.


How anyone can say either of them are better storytellers than Lupe is beyond me. The Cool (the track) alone sh*ts on anything Cole or Kendrick have ever done.

Flow - Lupe
Charisma - Kendrick
Lyrics - Lupe
Storytelling ability - Lupe
Song structure - Cole

First off, I would not put Lupe into this generation of emcees and the comparison is a bit unfair because between mixtapes and albums Lupe has more to work with....but it is what it is.
As a disclaimer I am a big fan of Lupe's music, even of his recent material. I feel "Lasers" was a necessary evil and both "Friend of the People" and "F&L2" are underrated. That being said I also realize if this was a contest in relatability, likability or appeal Lupe, would lose in all those categories. He does not make it easy to root for him. That being said, Lupe to me has cemented himself as one of the most skilled emcees to ever do it. The other 2 still have more of a journey before I can completely place them.

if Lupe goes back to his old style and content, it's a wrap for the game really.

Yea, this song, Theme Music to a Driveby, and Hustlaz Song were suppose to be on the orginal Food and Liquor and I believe sample clearance and or the early leak play a hand in them not making it
