Lupe Fiasco Bags Another Gold Album

October 18, 2021 1 min read 0 Comments

Towards the end of September, Lupe Fiasco was able to bag another milestone. 15 years after his debut album, Food & Liquor was officially certified gold, placing it next to Lu's other gold albums The Cool and Lasers. 

Now, Lupe can add yet another project to the category.  To date, his 2012 project Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, has passed five-hundred thousand album-equivalent units and earned the rapper his seventh total RIAA certification.

While not quite as revered as its predecessor, Food & Liquor II remains a huge hit and well received chapter in Lu's catalog -- as evidenced by this latest accomplishment. Lupe himself took a moment to celebrate the new plaque on Instagram, saying little but showing great pride in his work all the same.

"Double Gold," he writes, putting the series on display. "#TheMarathonContinues #LFFL12."
