For All Seasons

A little listening music


NATURE
FOR ALL SEASONS

This was the debut album from QB rapper Nature after the Firm album failed to deliver like it should have. Personally I think that album was great but I guess everyone else disagreed. As far as rap goes I believe that this is a classic, it's definitely one of the best albums from NY in my opinion but it still got slept on.

1.INTRO

2.MAN'S WORLD-a wonderful start to the album as Nature flips a sick James Brown sample, speaking on how to be a man. The production from Poke & Tone is excellent and really fits Nature's style and would make a nice single. This is a classic in my opinion and worth a listen with out a doubt.

3.WE AIN'T FRIENDS-this is another really good track as Nature speaks on former friends who turned their backs on him. Each verse is great and the beat from Lord Jamar is haunting and a little off at the same time, it is a creepy yet weird instrumental. This is another good track that all should enjoy.

4.LIKE THIS-I love this song right here from the beat to the verses this is one of my favorite tracks on the album. The production from L.E.S. is really catchy and makes it sound like it could be a single if you edit it right, plus when the beat switches up it still sounds great in the second verse. Lyrically he kills it and even mentions The Firm, all hip hop heads should remember them.

5.THE ULTIMATE HIGH-the song that most people will want to listen to since Nas guests on this track, and rightfully so since this is a classic. Nature and Nas trade verses about you guess what and hit with a catchy hook. Still the best thing about this track in my opinion is the production from Ski who did a great job with this. I love the flute he put in this track it makes it sound kinda smooth even over the bass.

6.YOUNG LOVE-this is another track that has that mainstream appeal to it due to the beat and the subject matter. This is obviously about love between him and a young lady so this is a story rap, I think this is a good track. The beat from Gowdy is real smooth and has a Spanish kinda quality to it I think, not sure if that is right.

7.GO AHEAD-Lord Jamar returns to produce anther track and like the last one it is another great instrumental that Nature goes off on. Nature goes off on this track and I like the way he flows on this track, the beat really fits the style of his flow. The beat is really cool sounding with some violins I believe and has a nice loud hit to it.

8.NATURE'S SHINE-Poke & Tone return to drop another single worthy production with a nice smooth vibe to it, it is kinda simple yet not if that makes sense. Nature drops gems on this track about himself and his crew and why he does this, a great track right here one of my favorites on the album.

9.SMOKE-Poke & Tone return to drop another single like sounding track for Nature to get off on, but it sounds like another song I have heard maybe a Jay-z song or something. Obviously this is another track about smoking as if you did not know. Nature sounds great on this beat and the hook is really catchy. This is another really good song that all will enjoy as Nature does his thing on here.

10.REMEMBER-one of the absolute best songs on the album with out a doubt as Nature really shines over this track with great insightful verses. EZ Elpee's instrumental makes it easy I am sure as it is very sorrowful and insightful sounding, it makes you think. Nature holds it down with some down to earth lyrics that most can relate to.

11.TALKING THAT-Poke & Tone once again supply Nature with a wonderful instrumental that has single written all over, I like the soulful guitar that this track has. Nature as usual does his thing on this track with that bravado type rap as he kills the track with ease. One of the better tracks on the album, of course that can be said for all of these songs.

12.I DON'T GIVE-this is a song about relationships or at least his relationship with a girl who cheats, or does he? That is what this story type track is all about and it is another good track worthy of the album. I like the hook with him and some woman as they trade back and forth, and the beat is great. Tim Riley did a great job on the production tip with a nice classical sound to it, I like the keys in this track.

13.DON'T STOP-Poke & Tone return to drop a UFO sounding type of instrumental for Nature to rap over. Nature does his thing on here but it just doesn't seem like a good way to end the album in my opinion. I don't know what it is about this track because it is good, I don't know.

This was an excellent debut album and I wish he would drop some more albums like this, he only has dropped a few more after this.
