Lootpack is an American hip-hop group signed to Stones Throw Records, which consists of Madlib, Wildchild and DJ Romes. Though they were together since high school, the Lootpack first made their presence known in 1994, when the group’s beat conductor, Madlib, produced "Mary Jane," a Tha Alkaholiks 12”. Later that year, Lootpack's lyrical skills were heard on the song "Turn The Party Out" on the Alkaholiks’ debut LP "21 And Over," and "WLIX" from the Liks’ second LP.
