Always thinking outside of the box, Lupe Fiasco flipped every current hip hop term imaginable on his recent album, Food & Liquor II.

Lupe Fiasco knew this when he crafted the album, starting off with the black cover.
During Lupe Fiasco’s promo run for Food & Liquor II, he discussed a number of topics, but never directly addressed the topic of the album cover.
