Great job on starting a forum for Lupe. IMO Lupe is one of the MOST UNDERRATED Artists in Hip Hop. Food & Liquor was a very good album. I loved Kick, Push and I Gotcha. As for The Cool. The whole album is SICK! I love Superstar, Go Baby, Go Go Gadget Flow, Paris, Tokyo, Hip Hop My Saved My Life, and the rest of them. To me I think its disappointing that he doesn't get air time like the other main stream rappers. I think he is up there with some of the best artists who are making music today. Like I said, he is very Underrated.

Just Superstar? There's Kick, Push, I Gotcha, Go Baby, Go Go Gadget Flow, Hip Hop Saved My Life, and more. People need to listen to more songs from the artist, not just one song.

THE COOL (fka Micheal Young History)


Resurrected: Amongst the undead since September 2006

Birthplace: Six feet under the Earth's surface

Biography: The Cool is the physical manifestation of History's debt to humanity. Payback for every user abused and every family torn apart by History, The Cool walks amongst the living as a zombie. “He” – that term used lightly, considering The Cool isn't human – reeks of death, an ironic contrast to his polished three-piece-suit appearance. Searching for his purpose, The Cool haunts The Streets.

sidenotes: His only possessions—two diamond earrings, a gold chain, and a letter from History's eight-year-old sister.
Despite the long-finished settling of rigor mortis, the sharp sensation of three bullets constantly causes aching in The Cool.
Only one thought plays in his head like a broken record – "Hustler for death, no heaven for a gangster."



THE STREETS


Born: Conceived thousands of years ago, when the first paths and roads were paved.

Birthplace: Unknown

Biography: A temptress like none other, The Streets possesses an uncanny knack for seduction and betrayal. An equal opportunity heartbreaker, she exudes an allure irresistible to both men and women. Some have accused her of pedophilia, having lured people into her tangled web at ages as immature as eight years old. The word “love” isn’t in her vocabulary – although The Game is her admitted soulmate. Yet, The Streets has always felt a peculiarly strong connection with Michael Young History.

sidenotes: Often referred to by her condemners as a "demon in a dress."
No stranger to loss, she's tattooed the names of her murdered ex-boyfriends across her breasts.
Her ambitions are clear upon eye contact, with dollar signs in the place of her pupils.
Witnesses to History's slaying reported seeing brown, almost Hennessy-colored tears roll down The Streets.



THE GAME


Born: Given life the moment the snake suckered Adam and Eve

Birthplace: The Garden of Eden

Biography: An immortal, soulless entity, The Game scours city blocks and country landscapes with equal menace. Scheming from morning until night, he changes targets like the wind – hustlers, politicians, celebrities, and impressionable youth have all succumbed to his charms. His most valued accomplice is his wife, The Streets. Together, this "Bonnie and Clyde" duo have affected the lives of every man, woman, and child. The victim closest to their affections, however, was Michael Young History, a tortured man seeking acceptance through fame and fortune. Of course, nothing from The Game comes without a price.

Sidenotes: Quite convincing, his foolproof method of touching minds is through blunt fingertips.
Through his wire-tapped ears, he’s able to hear the approaching of any enemy.
When not hovering over common society, he lives behind bars, plotting ways to see his son, Heroine, and secretly conversing with his marital lover, The Streets.
Despite carrying out such heartless actions, The Game does have a blood-pumping system – an amplified system pumping beats through woofer-like veins.



~texts straight from Lupefiasco.com ... so its not bullshit

my analysis: The COOL loves the STREETS & was raised by the GAME. Since Micheal had no father the GAME became that fatherly figure for Micheal & together the STREETS & the GAME created the COOL


Wow what a load of bullshit for a hip hop album... it starting to look more on a Rpg game....
This guy is not underrated... hes not bad... but pls dont overrate this guy i saw him freestyle in a youtube vid. and omg that was seriously wack... there are soo many better Mc's out there....
Mc's u prob never heard of on US radiostations :p
