thrill 099 - 2001
Second Nature is the highly anticipated follow up to All Natural's groundbreaking and critically acclaimed debut No Additives, No Preservatives. Proving that true artists with their heads on right can get past the "sophomore jinx" with the maturity of seniors, All Natural has used the last 3 years to enhance their outlook on the world's music and how they wanted to be seen and remembered. All Natural is fronted by Capital D and Tone B. Nimble, the two older brothers that lead The Family Tree crew of Windy City hip-hop royalty. The Family Tree and its label, All Natural Inc., have been self-releasing their fiercely independent brand of hip hop, slowly turning what began as a hobby and passion into a business of pleasure.

For album number two, Capital D and Tone took the time to make sure that all the bases were well covered and thought out. All Natural puts the basic principals of hip-hop to practice with each beat made, rhyme written and scratch laid. Second Nature is the essence of hip-hop past, present and future. Conceptually, the album goes beyond the usual underground topics of freestyling and battling, Capital D and Tone lead by example as the source of excellence that embodies The Family Tree. True to the spirit of all great hip-hop, All Natural invite the talents of The Family Tree and other likeminded Midwestern hip-hop pioneers: The Molemen, Dug Infinite & No I.D., Atmosphere, Lone Catalysts, Mr. Greenweedz, DJ 3rd Rail, and J.U.I.C.E. all make appearances on Second Nature. As the band notes, this album is appropriately titled, because making classic hip-hop tracks is second nature to All Natural.
