Nice video. An album from the CRS crew is definitely something hip hop needs now, but does anyone else think Pharrell should be replaced by Common. Just a thought!


MUSIC: Lupe Fiasco – The Cool Live Album Leak Preview

11 12 2007

Superstar, have no fear! The Cool is here! Well… not quite… Lupe Fiasco’s latest hipster-hop masterpiece doesn’t hit shelves until December 18. A concept album of sorts, the cool is a metaphorical face-off between the streets and the game. Both take on all the features of a living, breathing character as the pulse of The Cool kicks in. And with production by Soundtrakk, Mike Shinoda and Patrick Stump, it’s a hell of a pulse. With cameos by everyone from local unknowns to Snoop Dogg, we know you can’t wait another minute for The Cool, so we’re streaming it live, free and in full, RIGHT NOW, only on The Leak.
