DJ Semtex BEST OF 2008-The Cool
Here's what he said about THE GRAMMY AWARD WINNING AND 8 TIME NOMINATED Lupe Fiasco and The Cool :)
"Lupe Fiasco is one of the most slept on artists. A lot of people didn’t clock the depth of his lyrical skills on this project, and he may have needed a couple more ‘Superstars’ to get that mass media attention.
The Carter 3 is hot, as ‘808s & Heartbreak’, but ‘The Cool’ is a body of work in the same way that ‘College Dropout’, or ‘Black & Both sides are. This is pure Hip-Hop, one of those classic albums where you don’t have to press the forward button on any track, and every time you listen to it, you clock a deeper meaning behind what he was saying.
‘Streets on fire’ is my favourite joint, his performance at Somerset House in 08′ was exceptional, he has longevity in this Hip-Hop game even though he keeps threatening to retire."
Damn anyone who disagrees with Semtex!!!! lmao
