Heard in the sounds of hip-hop today is the nonstop bragging about cars, jewelry, etc. Great for radio and video play, but never refreshing, an artist who changes it up is Lupe Fiasco, bringing actual lyrical content and less smoke & mirrors. On his newest buzz single Coulda Been off his late 2007-bound follow-up album, The Cool, Lupe uses clever wordplay to divulge what he would do… if he wasn’t rapping. Lupe’s distinct delivery is something that has not been heard since a young Jay-Z and Jay himself has said as much.
