With each album in the 1990s, Natas moved their music forward both as MCs and in terms of production, evolving from a juvenile exploitation group into an earnest group serious about changing the rap game with their increasingly realized rap style, a potent merger of Funkadelic guitar funk and Def Jam-era Rick Rubin-influenced beats. The less exploitative subject matter stands as the most noteworthy aspect of the group's growth with Multikillionaire: The Devil's Contract; the group doesn't rely so much on perverse sex, morbid obsessions, or heretical talk but rather attitude here to make their music interesting. This album isn't as realized as WWW.COM, but it's closer than any preceding Natas album.
