  1. By boldly expanding the parameters of mainstream hip-hop, Fiasco's threatening to make rap a welcoming place for geeks and iconoclasts as well as pimps and thugs.
  2. Though I wish the beats were less corny-orchestral, Fiasco marks his own turf in a three-song sequence that would have led the second side back in the day. [Feb/Mar 2007]
  3. Being bold and different for Lupe pays off right from the jump.
  4. Food & Liquor is one of the year's fresher efforts and future classics.
  5. Food & Liquor is the best hip-hop album of 2006.
  6. A messy, ambitious CD by a deeply thoughtful MC. [6 Oct 2006, p.71]

    Fantastic album. One of the best of the decade for hip hop. I'm not sure Lupe is appreciated enough for what he brings to the table, but thisFantastic album.
