Lost Tapes ... LP Traffic/Crate Diggas Palace, 2004. New Copy 2LP (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
Way more than just a set of "lost tapes" – but that's what we've come to expect for any project that involves Madlib – an artist for whom even the smallest of moments is a thing of greatness! Lootpack are the trio that first helped Madlib rise to fame in the 90s – working alongside Wildchild and DJ Romes, and really perfecting his production skills – and the cuts here are from the years before they got signed to Stones Throw, including work from the Psyche Move EP that was their first solo release. Yet there's also plenty of Stones Throw guests on the project – including Declaime (aka Dudley Perkins), God's Gift, Kazi, Oh No, and Medaphoar – fleshing things out nicely on tracks that include "Inner Soul", "Psyche Move", "I Come Real With This", "Situation", "Get Whack", "Antidote To Antidope", "Attack Of The Tupperware Puppets", "Forever Beef", and "I Declare War".

There's been a gap since the last solo project from Lootpack legend Wildchild – but it's also clear that he's grown a lot in the process – really bringing this mature sensibility to the way he addresses some of the still-current issues that were there in his earlier work, and working with a production style that has the urgency of the tunes continue to burn strongly throughout! The record's full of top-shelf guests – Georgia Anne Muldrow, Posdnous, Guilty Simpson, Sadat X, Murs, and many others – but Wildchild's clearly the leader of the pack, standing proud amidst the crowd, on titles that include "PTSD", "Manifestin", "Fatherhood", "3 Sistas & A Child", "Livin In Color", "Grown Folk", "Say Their Name", "Breath", and "Edge Of Tomorrow".
