Sure, City Kids may be a few months old, as it was included on Natural's free, DJBooth-hosted Ways to Go LP, which dropped in November. But when a record is this dope, it could be decades old and still sound brand new. Fresh off dropping Election Day for our DJBooth Freestyle Series, Natural returns with a set of visuals for this project standout. Bringing the title to life, Natural harks back to the days when he was swinging from the monkey bars, not spitting bars. He may be a child in the video, but his flow is all grown up: hard-hitting, yet smooth and dripping with confidence. Joining the Beantown native atop Teddy Roxpin's headnodic, sampled beat is Dutch ReBelle, whose similarly deft, surgical flow rounds out the record. Natural doesn't have any larger projects on the agenda, but we'll keep you posted on his plans as further details emerge.
