    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 this album is great song to song. "Kick Push", "I Gotcha", and especially "Hurt Me Soul" are my favorites, and show is lyrical abilities.

    Great album, one of the best, if not the best hip hop album of all time.

    He has hands-down the best lyrical flow in the game, "Hurt Me Soul' is arguably one of the best, most meaningful songs ever.

    First of all the people who reviewed this as a negative have no understanding of Hip Hop whatsoever. They obviously didn't listen to the lyrics at all or just dumb. 'DudeLuv' I suggest you listen to something like Soulja Boy because you do not understand Hip Hop.

    This is one of the most original, profound, ingenious and intelligent Hip Hop albums of all time. If this can't be acknowledged
    as one of the greatest, then there is no hope for Hip Hop fans or the genre itself. Expand

  1. Food & Liquor just might be the steadiest and most compelling rap album of 2006.
  2. There is not a bad verse on it.
  3. Where Fiasco misses classic status is his sonic approach.
