    Extremely disappointed with this release. I guess the title mislead me. Food and Liquor was one of the best releases of the last decade. This album was nothing like the ambitious Food and Liquor. The beats were terrible and the lyrics were to focused with philosophy. Also throughout the album he had this repetitive lazy flow.

    Lupe tried. The lyrics are good enough to deserve a solid rating, but this album is boring. That's really the only thing i can say about it it's just boring. Every beat either sounds the same (same tempo and instrumentation) or just plain bad. He never changes his flow or voice intonation either and doesn't seem to have much passion in his voice at all. I feel like I'm being lectured toLupe tried. The lyrics are good enough to deserve a solid rating, but this album is boring. That's really the only thing i can say about it it's just boring.

I feel like I'm being lectured to instead of just listening to music. Music can have a meaning AND be fun too, they're not mutually exclusive Lupe! At the end of the day it's still better than Lasers though Expand

    What it proves to be is an exhilarating, uneven, thought-provoking, over-egged, over-long, lucid, barnstorming, soul-infused hip-hop album of a type that, as I may have mentioned once or twice or five times, you just don't get any more. Except, of course, you do, and here it is.

    Some of these tracks give Lupe the room to triumph... But he falters on the frivolous "Heart Donor."

    Food & Liquor II is fine and good. It's just not The Great American Rap Album.
