Everyday Is Not A “Fiasco”

Lupe Fiasco Talks The Cool, Cheeseburgers, Retirement

Lupe Fiasco’s got a mind that runs a mile a minute, and a mouth that can keep up with it. The sharp-tongued Chicago MC will follow-up last year’s well-received Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor with Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool, due December 18 from 1st & 15th/Atlantic. We phoned Lupe and did our best to keep up as he talked about the character-based concept behind The Cool, the album’s darker hues, the infamous cheeseburger track, radio and comic book spin-offs, Child Rebel Soldiers, Cornel West, and his plans to “retire” after his third album.
