Hurt Me Soul & Kick, Push-Lupe Fiasco

Lupe Fiasco has been a long time love of mine. Back in the day, which in this case was 2006, he was always the guy to rap about issues about poverty and escaping an unwanted life, sexism, abuse, religion, crime, and drug addictions. Lupe talks about growing up on the West side of Chicago and his music always crosses boundaries that many don't dare cross. But his music always raises such an important and unavoidable point that it absolutely needed to be said.

 He's extremely well known but I think his older albums still deserve all of the attention they can get. He didn't tip toe around any of the harsh subjects, he straight up jumps into them and throws them into your face and I think that deserves an incredible amount of respect because it takes an incredible amount of courage and intelligence to do what he did. Lupe Fiasco is sort of in between old school and new school. His album  Food & Liquor was released in September of 2006.
