Bronze Nazareth’s debut album, The Great Migration, hits the streets May 23rd, 2006 on
Think Differently/Babygrande Records, Wu-International quickly catches up with the man himself for an interview

These city streets remained torn and potholed as he grew. This was a location where the poor become poorer, and even the middle class is wrenched into the downward funnel of misfortune. His was an existence where welfare cheese was plentiful, free lunch was magnificent, and friends were friends. Situated herein, a tight knit family strives to survive in the midst of animation. Manifested in that very inner city house were sounds of joy, happiness, arguments, pain, and fighting. It is in this exact environment, that a young man begins to write scriptures. These writings became the escape from the cement seas of pain and anguish that would confront the man made from Bronze.

A cast of pure hearted men ran with him, aiming to maintain a righteous path along their travels. Each individual brought a new sense of thought and knowledge into each other’s lives. From this wisdom Bronze prospered, and a mounting aspiration began to mold itself in the form of sound. As life moved on, this noble man became part of the city, and part of the grief that has drizzled onto the souls of man. Through his fingers, hip hop music became the map by which he would navigate his existence. Utensils such as keyboards, notepads, pens, pencils, computers, and mics became the medium through which he spoke.

Out of the structures of life, lessons, experience, and understanding comes Bronze Nazareth, a student in the school of life.

Bronze makes a whole hearted and mind blowing leap from producer extraordinaire to MC with a verbal prowess comparable to his seasoned production chops. As The RZA instantly recognized, Bronze churns out searing, painful production that is practically tangible in its emotive weight, while his deep poetic lyrics are designed to put a thinking mind to work. As the producer of every track on "The Great Migration," Bronze incorporates the rawness of his beloved old-school soul albums, injecting his beats with painful moans and notes that mesmerize.

Throughout the years, Bronze’s music has fueled the sale of tens-of-thousands of units and left its own indelible imprint upon the Wu-Tang legacy. Having most recently served as a prominent producer on the underground smash "Think Differently Music: Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture," to date Bronze has worked with the likes of GZA, Ras Kass, Cannibal Ox, Tragedy Khadafi, Del the Funkee Homosapien, Casual of Heiroglyphics, Roc Marciano, 4th Disciple and Killarmy, Black Market Militia, Gang Starr affiliate Afu-Ra, Prodigal Sunn, Timbo King, DJ Noize, Solomon Childs, Planet Asia, Littles, and many more of today’s most vibrant and relevant independent acts.

After reading the interview you will realize that Bronze is not just a sharp lyricist and super producer but also a deep thinker thinking differently on The Great Migration, so let the exodus begin…
