Natural Elements dropped a few other records after this but i only recommend to check out the earlier solo stuff on Fortress Records they put out after this debut like:

L-Swift "How It´z Goin' Down" (1995)

Mister Voodoo "Lyrical Tactics" (1996)

They´re all produced by Charlemagne (like this one) and are def. worth checking for !!!
