"Actually there is about as much point to introducing an artist as well known as Wildchild as there is to publicly introducing a tidal wave or a national epidemic. After all, there aren't many people who won't recognize his name, or that of his group Lootpack, and no one-nobody at all-who will be able to place one of their platters on a turntable and merely listen.

Lyrical spontaneity is the spark that fires the music of Lootpack, and this is especially true of the Wildchild. As all stages of time exist openly in music, Wildchild's lyrics are reliant on the past, aware of today, and curious about the future. Full of drive, clamor, brashness, sadness, and elation of the city, it is hip hop music without any unnecessary trappings.

Wildchild is now a lyricist's lyricist, but for all his incredible technical ability, his outstanding quality as an MC is the warmth and joy he communicates through moment to moment creation."
