Official reissue of original Lootpack crew member/U.S. hip-hop producer Kankick's 2004 album, originally released on Smoggy Day Recordings. Includes two bonus tracks. This primarily instrumental album features four vocal tracks from MED (Stones Throw), Blame One (Soulspazm), Kancritic (aka Kankick), others. Recorded between 1996-2001, Oxnard's Kankick offers up a prime collection of "blunted" beats that age well, in step with other like-minded producers of the era: Doom, Dilla, Madlib. Kankick has done beats for Wildchild (Industry) DJ Babu (Beat Junkies), Declaime (Groove Attack), and Visionaries (Up Above), and has released albums on Ramp, Illmindmuzik, Mean Street, etc., but seems to be drawn to self-released, no-promotion CD-R editions that have inevitably become sought-after collector's items. This will appeal to fans of Madlib and Oh No, as Kankick is considered by some to be the fourth member of The Lootpack alongside Madlib, Ohno, and DJ Romes. He contributed heavily to their debut, as well as The Alkoholiks' 21 & Over.
