Archival Thursdays: Lootpack - Soundpieces-The Antidote (1999)

Lootpack picks up where hip-hop left off, plain and simple. These guys are on a mental-plane like no other and make hip-hop sound fun & worth listening to again! Battle-style rhymes with static filled beats are the recipe here and when it comes to production, no-one does it better than Madlib. Tracks such as "Whenimondamic" or "Crate diggin" are perfect examples of the attributes this album has to offer. Released on the wonderful Stones Throw label, guests on the album include Quasimoto, Dilated Peoples and The Alkaholics.

I found this release at the now defunct Blue Note Records back in 2001.
