If “Bitch Bad” helped to get some of the stench of Lasers off your mind, then “Lamborghini Angles” should wash away any remaining apprehension about Lupe Fiasco’s focus for Food & Liquor 2. Lupe doesn’t always use highly complex rhyme schemes, but he does requires you be an active listener. “Lamborghini Angels” is heavy on religious imagery that’s jarringly combined with the ugliness, beauty and contradiction of human frailty. Bringing the divine down with profane scenarios is well-executed even if your own personal beliefs are at odds with Fiasco’s presentation and/or implied stance.
Food & Liquor 2 is due out on September 25.
