His first two records, Lupe Fiasco’s Food and Liquor, and The Cool, are considered by many to be modern classics. However, the Chicago rapper’s critical success declined with his next two records, the pop-fueled Lasers and the boldly-titled Food and Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album, Part 1.

The album’s first song “Mural” is a 9-minute monster, with Fiasco unrelentingly spitting bar after bar for the track’s duration.
