The Firm's Nature Signs New Deal, Prepares 4-Part EP "Seasons Changed"
Nature is back with a production team and label that he strongly compares to The Trackmasters, and plans to release an EP every season.
Queens, New York emcee Nature garnered fame as the least-known member of late 1990s super-group The Firm. Alongside Nas, AZ and Foxy Brown, late addition Nature (a label-insisted replacement for Cormega) received a #1 debut for The Album, an early release on Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment.
Outside of The Firm, Nature released an assortment of mixtapes and a album while signed to Columbia/Trackmasters Records, For All Seasons, which debuted on the Top 200, along with its 2002 follow-up, Wild Gremlinz. The "seasons" theme continues, 13 years later, as Nature announced that he's preparing for Seasons Changed.
The four-part EP series, released seasonally, will reportedly boast production from Buckwild, 88-Keys, Marco Polo and Red Spyda. Additionally, Nature's newly-announced DCM Records label includes established in-house producers Sickness, DJ Concept, DJ SupaDave, Skammadix and Little Vic.
“DCM is like a young version of the Trackmasters,” Nature said, comparing his latest producer backers to Tone & Poke, whom he released his first two solo LPs with, along with Firm biz.
A release date for Seasons Changed has yet to be announced.
