AllMusic Review by

From the very first moments of WILD GREMLINZ, Nature makes it clear that he differs from many of his hip-hop contemporaries. For starters, how many frozen-frown rappers would be likely to open their album with the sound of unbridled laughter? How many thug-life obsessives would follow that with a sincere-sounding thank you to all of their listeners? On a deeper level, Nature lays out his mission statement right away, declaring that "this ain't that radio sh-t, it's that street-corner hip-hop." Unusually colorful synthesizer textures adorn the tracks, on which Nature manages to delve into street-real scenarios without ever sounding like a braggart, fake, or showoff.
