The Pack, ‘Wolfpack Party’ (SMC)

Moody, unhinged rapper Lil B has become the face of this Berkeley quartet, but their sex-themed sophomore LP is just as frivolously accessible as 2006 sneaker-anthem hit “Vans.” Wolfpack Party sounds as if Bay Area hyphy, Spank Rock, and Euro-trance were muddled in Seth Brundle’s telepod. The result is — wait for it — engagingly fly. With ridiculous Auto-Tuned hooks, filthy lyrics (“Bustin’ on your ass / Can’t believe I said that / Never been a racist / I left her with a wet back”), and jittery beats from Young L and the Cataracts, it’s worth putting your name on the guest list.
