Album Review

In 1999, the Lootpack's Soundpieces: Da Antidote set forth the crew's cure for whack MCs and non-believers. Four years later, they return with their Secondary Protocol — another demonstration of the group's collaborative skill in delivering their vision of hip-hop purity. This time, though, the crew supports fellow founding member Wildchild, who perpetrates his cutting rhymes in a solo setting. The original Lootpack are here, though: Madlib produces half the tracks and DJ Romes provides the cut, but Secondary Protocol also shows off the crew's unofficially expanded lineup as OH NO (Madlib's brother) produces half the tracks.

Tracks like "Kiana," "Knicknack 2002," "Bounce," and "Puttin' in Work" create a serious upbeat and positive vibe that prove that the Lootpack haven't gone anywhere.

This was quite an accomplishment for the rapper, a California native who had started rhyming with fellow Lootpack members DJ Romes and Madlib in college. After the group proved to be a hit on the West Coast live circuit, Stones Throw Records offered the trio a contract, which they signed in late 1998. The next year...
