Various Artists All Natural Inc. Anthology, Vol. 1
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: All Natural
Some of Chicagoland‘s best MCs and producers call the All Natural Inc. label home and, for the bulk of this compilation, the ANI lineup prove exactly why they‘re so respected. From the simple yet playful lyrical styling of Rita J on the PNS-produced "Warm-Up (Exercise)" to the eye-opening tag-team rhymes of The Primeridian on "Raw," every act proceeds with a fresh approach. Yet the common bond that holds this roster together is that all these artists effortlessly make soulful hip-hop-something that many indie cats continuously fail to do.
