The Cool (CD) ~ Lupe Fiasco (Artist) Cover Art 2007 was the year that 50 Cent went head to head with Kayne West's Graduation and lost. It is also the year that underground hip-hop catapulted to the forefront of the genre with releases by Grayskul, UGK and the amazing Aesop Rock. Soul diva Mary J Blige left us breathless in December with Growing Pains and soul/dance/hip-hop and funk were blown to bhangra bits by MIA's Kala.
