Chicagoan Lupe Fiasco will return with a new record in December.
Concept album The Cool will be out here on the 18th of December through Atlantic imprint 1st and 15th; an imprint he co-founded.
The record weaves a story from the narratives of two central characters. The Streets is a female “personification of the streets. Everything about street life that you fall in love with”; the Game is “the personification of… the hustle game, the pimp game, the mack game”.
On ‘Gotta Eat’, Billboard.com says, Fiasco raps from the perspective of a cheeseburger.
