Queensbridge representatives and longtime friends Nature and Prodigy have decided to parlayÂ their personal relationship into a business partnership. Nature has signed to Prodigyâ€™s Infamous Records for a multiple album deal. The first solo LP under the new arrangement is scheduled for release in 2015.Â
â€œIâ€™m excited we made this deal happen. Iâ€™m even more excited for the fans of Queensbridge Hip Hop,â€ says Nature. â€œWe came up together. Mobb Deep has always been my people and this deal makes sense. Infamous and DCM 2015, we going in!â€
This will be Natureâ€™s first full length album since 2008â€™sÂ Pain Killer.Â The New York native did drop the EPÂ Seasons ChangedÂ in 2013 under independent label Deep Concepts Media (DCM). Prior to that, Nature was also part of the Hip Hop supergroup The Firm with Nas, Foxy Brown, and AZ. The Dr. Dre produced collective released their only LP,Â The Firm: The Album, in 1997.
â€œMe and Nature have been down with each other for years, and it was only a matter of time before we got together on some serious business stuff. The time has come. Expect the best,â€ states Prodigy.
