Compared to the slow-roll flows of most West Coast rappers, Wildchild rhymes in wind sprints. Every exhalation races to the finish; as Wildchild explains in "Code Red," "build momentum/gain it/to pass you like Marion Jones." It's an exhilarating, though at times exhausting, experience to take him at full force, but guests like Aceyalone, labelmate Medaphoar, and fast rap legend Percee P provide some respite from Wildchild's lyrical storm. Though this is supposed to be Wildchild's solo moment, the entire album is produced by his Lootpack partner Madlib and Madlib's younger brother Oh No (talented family, that one), although Madlib never actually cameos with his funky, clunky rhymes. Instead, the prolific producer and baby brother provide a consistent sound bed, full of dust-drizzled loops and iron-fisted percussive blows. This balance offers the best of both worlds--giving Wildchild a convincing opportunity to shine on his own but remaining familiar enough for Lootpack fans to enjoy as well. --Oliver Wang
In '99 Wildchild, Madlib, & DJ Romes came out as the Lootpack. This album is the closest we have got to another new Lootpack album since.

It has the feel of the laid back Cali vibe but at ..
Solo LP from 1/2 of the LPs, but preety much everybody makes a cameo. Two thirds of the production is handled by Madlib himself and the rest is by Madlib's lil' bro Oh No. The result... a solid album that feels like a Lootpack release, but without the helium voiced Quasimoto and mumbly Madlib on the mic.One of the drawbacks, like one of the other reviewers stated, is that Wildchild has to let you know his name, "Wildchild aka Cracker Jack," all the time. Despite that, the beats, the rhymes... it's all go..
Man Stones Throw is on a roll this year. First they drop Jaylib and Charizma at the end of '03; then they bust out Madvillain, Stevie, Oh No and now Wild Child. This album is no Jaylib or Madvillain but that's not to say it's weak. This album is, in fact, great.Having picked up Oh No's 'The Disrupt' five minutes ago I'm still riding the Stones Throw train of thought - that is to say that you can't EVER go wrong with the production and that while the lyrics are an acquired taste they do grow on you without e..
