The greatest art is the purest art. Six years, three albums: the lyrical dissertation Food & Liquor (2006), its thematic successor The Cool (2009) and controversy-drenched LASERS (2011). Now, Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1.

"What I've learned is not to take anybody's advice. If you rely solely on your fans, it sets you up for the downfall on the industry side and if you rely on what your label is saying, it will disconnect you from your fans." - Lupe Fiasco
