On September 19th, 2006, Lupe Fiasco made his full-length debut with Food & Liquor, an album loaded with expectation after a scene-stealing appearance on Kanye West's “Touch The Sky” and a smash single in “Kick, Push.” Allow us to revisit the album, track-by-track, in celebration of its 10-year anniversary.
On August 26th, 1998, Mos Def and Talib Kweli came together as Black Star and released one of the most significant albums in hip-hop's history. Allow us to take a walk down memory lane and revisit the album, track-by-track. Read it all after the jump.
I was going through a thread in a forum and discovered full sample packages for Late Registration & College Dropout. I instantly put the C.D. on and have been vibin out and reminiscing like whoa. This album is Certified Classic and holds a definite mark in the history of hip-hop. I decided to drop this explicit version for ya'll since you can't find it on the actual album itself. I've always wonder why that happens on albums sometimes, one track is edited but the entire album isn't. Meh. Enjoy.

This track and I go way back to the very beginning of the digital music revolution, which corresponds rather conveniently for historians, at the beginning of this decade. Maybe because 2010 is about to wrap or maybe because it's just that good, today I found myself versing "The Wake Up Show Anthem '94", one of the first mp3s I downloaded back in 2000.
