Lootpack

The Lootpack were one of several old-school revivalist crews to come out of southern California during the '90s, and recorded some of the most underappreciated music on the revitalized West Coast underground scene. The group was formed in 1990 in Oxnard, CA (a smaller beach town about a hour outside of Los Angeles), by longtime friends Madlib (producer, MC, b. Otis Jackson Jr.), Wildchild (MC, b. Jack Brown), and DJ Romes (scratching, b. Romeo Jimenez). The trio members had been trying their hand at hip-hop since junior high, and formed an official group while in college.

Their demo tape caught the attention of King Tee and Tash of Tha Alkaholiks, and soon the Lootpack joined the related collective the Likwit Crew; they also produced two tracks on Tha Alkaholiks' 1994 debut, 21 & Over, and appeared on the follow-ups Coast II Coast and Likwidation. In the meantime, the Lootpack found it difficult to land a satisfying deal of their own. Their only recorded output for a time was the 1996 EP Psyche Move, which was funded by Madlib's father, soul singer Otis Jackson Sr. Psyche Move attracted the attention of Bay Area DJ Peanut Butter Wolf, who eventually signed the group to his Stones Throw label.

The Lootpack's first Stones Throw release was the 12" single "The Anthem" in 1998. Two more singles, "Whenimondamic" and "Questions," preceded the Lootpack's first full-length album, Soundpieces: Da Antidote, which was finally issued in 1999. While it wasn't massively popular, the record caused a stir in underground hip-hop circles, winning high praise from the musicians and critics who managed to discover it. It spun off another 12" in "Weededed," and marked Madlib as a producer to watch in the new millennium. In fact, several of his side projects -- most notably the bizarre double-identity Quasimoto and the jazz-funk group Yesterday's New Quintet -- consumed his attention in the immediate wake of Soundpieces.

Though the Lootpack were largely silent on record, they continued to tour over the next few years, and DJ Romes released his own breakbeat record, Hamburger Hater Breaks, in 2001; also that year, the group assembled its own documentary film, Da Packumentary. The single "On Point" appeared in 2002, and a full-length collection of previously unreleased tracks, Lost Tapes, came out in 2004. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

If I only I could turn back time to change my mind and spend my dime on true Hip Hop! What if the loots blew, if gangsta rap was a thing of the past. My radio could blast! instead I'm in fear of turning it on and putting on the message that new rap brings...
