The First Two CDs I Ever Bought [Part 1 of 2] {4 Stars}
Norfeest | Washington DC USA | 07/01/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Queen Latifah could be considered a prototype because of the direction her career has gone. Not only did she have skills, but she had the business end taken care of (Flava Unit management, records, & production company) and even turned into one heck of an actress. She even executive produced this album and Naughty's debut. The sister was (and still is) on a roll. Nature Of A Sista is the first CD I ever bought (along with Naughty By Nature's self titled debut). Dana Owens shows her versatility on this album. Tracks like "Fly Girl", "How Do I Love Thee", and "One Mo' Time" show that Latifah can blend all kinds of different sounds. Production is handled by Naughty By Nature, K-Cut (Main Source), Luis "Louie Louie" Vega, Soulshock & CutFather (Soulpower), Nevelle Hodge, and Latifah herself. House, jazz, R&B, rap.....Latifah covers plenty of bases without damaging her credibility. The girl is simply too talented to be restrained by genres.

As far as flaws, there really aren't that many to be found. There may be one too many r&b tracks on this album for the typical rap fan. It's done very well though, so I can't really say it's a bad thing. There are some tracks that could fall under skip material like "Bad As A Mutha", "If You Don't Know", and "Sexy Fancy". The rest of the album is great.

Nature Of A Sista' isn't Latifah's best album (that distinction belongs to the Black Reign LP), but this is still an excellent listen. Latifah doesn't get the props that she truly deserves for what she's done for females in the rap game. If you want to hear Latifah as she started to hit her stride, then pick this album up. There are a variety of sounds to be found here and Latifah easily masters each and every one of them. Two thumbs way up.

Standout Tracks: Nature Of A Sista, Love Again, How Do I Love Thee, One Mo' Time (My Favorite), Fly Girl, Latifah's Had It Up To Here, That's The Way We Flow feat. Safari Sister Swatch, and Give Me Your Love"
That heat!

"Yo, I am bumping this right now. "One Mo' Time" is cold-blooded! Latif can rhyme and I am happy to have found out about her when she was rockin' the mic! The album cover makes this look like some corny old-school stuff, but it's really just Queen Latifah runnin' through solid beats like WHOA. Buy this for a penny and shipping and thank me later."
