Lupe Fiasco’s “Food & Liquor” turns 15 years old today
 

 
One of my favorite albums from Lu. Seems like just yesterday I was bumping it on my way to middle school image Sh*t like this made me start to think lyrical rappers were cool.

Classic album. Listening to F&F tapes and then getting this. I thought Lu was the Goat

I know it wasn’t on the retail but Theme Music to a Drive by on the advance is still one of the hardest records ever

“ Don't give the black man food, give red man liquor
Red man fool, black man n*gga
Give yellow man tool, make him railroad builder
Also give him pan, make him pull gold from river
Give black man crack, glocks and things
Give red man craps, slot machines”

“Mayne, declaring war on the deck like they The Joker,
All while ducking from Bruce Wayne while they polka with the devil in our moonlitten ghetto,
“Hello My Name” stickers on the stickers of the veins in rehab,
remembering the feelings when they used to get mellow”

Tjis album holds a special place in my heart. Came at a time i was disinterested in all the gangster rap that dominated the era, and needed someone who spoke to me outside of Kanye. Carrera came thru with an undeniable classic in this one and the one after

Remember this LP had gotten leaked earlier that spring and he re released it on this day. I still have that leaked version somewhere in my storage. Both cuts were fire but I am almost glad he re released it. Either way CLASSIC fu*kiny album.
