Rapper Lupe Fiasco jetted into the mainstream in 2006 with Food & Liquor's politically minded lyrics. Whether you liked the album or were a fan of the beats but found the rhetoric too aggressive, you'll likely enjoy his latest release. On Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album, Part 1, Wasalu Muhammad Jaco (real name) abandons politics for candid and relatable themes of love and struggle. If nothing else, you have to give props to a rapper who can maintain a (mostly) PG-13 rated album in today’s matrix of curse and crime lyrics. Sun 8 p.m.
