A follow-up has not been released, but all three of them have collaborated on other projects and recorded solo records. DJ Romes released the Hamburger Hater Breaks record in 2001, Madlib has produced concept albums as Quasimoto and Yesterdays New Quintet. Wildchild's 2003 album Secondary Protocol featured all Lootpack members and is the closest thing to a second Lootpack album.
