Lupe Fiasco — Lupe Fiasco's The Cool ... LP 99.99

Lupe Fiasco takes his style a kick & a push deeper than the perceived sunny positivity of his debut on second album The Cool – flashing some biting social criticism – and a sharp brilliance that shows he's too restless to simply coast! The clean, buzzing synth funk orchestra vibe that was a highlight of the Food & Liquor set encores here, especially on the tracks Soundtrakk produced – but the mood is a little heavier. Strong stuff in both overall quality and lyrical content, with some real standouts. F & L was no fluke – Lupe is the real thing! Titles include ""Free Chilly" feat Sarah Green & Gemstones, "Go Go Gadget Flow", "The Coolest", "Superstar" feat Matthew Santos, "Paris, Tokyo", "Hi-Definition" feat Snoop Dogg and Pooh Bear, "Gold Wathch", "Intruder Alert" feat Sarah Green, "Dumb It Down"feat Gemstones & Graham Burris, "Fighters" feat Mathew Santos and more.  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Mello Music Group, 2016. Used
Two of post millennium indie hip hop's most distinctive rhyme stylists – Open Mike Eagle and Serengeti – teaming up as Cavanaugh, and it's as inspired of a project as we'd hoped! There's a dark, hazy mood here – particularly in the thick waves of synth in the production, but the ... CD

Endtroducing
Mo Wax, 1996. Used
It seems like when this came out, critics, and even DJs liked to drop the term "Trip Hop" whenever possible, and this album was held up as the watershed mark. A few years down the line and it still holds up, but as an instrumental hip hop LP, as much as a rock album (Shadow's gone on to ... CD
Elektra/Rhino, Early 90s. Used
A long overdue retrospective of the amazing run of 90s classics by Pete Rock and CL Smooth – a CD only set, but whatayagonnado? The set is a pretty great compendium of the best parts of The All Souled out single/ep, Mecca And The Soul Brother, The Main Ingredient, Pete's Soul Survivor LP, ... CD
April January
Domination, 2003/2005. Used
A sweet little groover of an instrumentals set from Chicago's Thaione – a newer version on CD! April January is a mellow, trippy, sampledelic platter of soundscapes from start to finish, cut with some nice dialogue samples that set the cool, cool vibe very nicely. All told, it's a jazzy, ... CD

Black Album
Roc-A-Fella, 2003. Used
"This here is the victory lap," raps Hove midway through The Black Album, his supposed career-capper (for this stage, anyway), and if nothing here immediately dazzles us to the core the way the best of his past singles have done, overall this is probably the most consistent front-to-back ... CD
Fat Beats, 2004. Used Gatefold
The raw, gritty modern east coast classic from The UN – featuring Roc Marciano, Dino Brave, Mike Raw, and Laku – who we first heard as a unit on Pete Rock's Petestrumentals set before delivering this underground gem in the early 00s! Includes "Buildin", "Mind ... CD
Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star
Rawkus, 1998. Used
The first full-length from Mos Def and Talib Kweli together as Black Star – a benchmark moment in hip hop history, and one of the finest duo vocal hip hip records of the 90s – and one of the best ever on Rawkus! In hindsight, it's all the more rewarding given Talib Kweli's longevity in ... CD
Blueprint
Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam, 2001. Used
Ok, it's not underground at all, but to our ears this is one of the best LP's of 2001. The only commercial LP with true hip hop production (he could afford to pay for the samples...) and honestly, better production than most underground LP's. (The only unfortunate thing about the LP is that as ... CD
