The Wu is back...actually scratch that the Wu never left.
Wu-Tang affiliate, Bronze Nazareth, is making moves in the hip hop world with his newest release, The Great Migration. The album is as creative and daring as any Wu-tang project has ever been.
Constant production and movements in the camp is a testament to the Wu's everlasting effect on hip-hop music. It also solidifies the Wu as still having one of the most innovative and daring groups in music today.
The theatre-style intro track let's audiences know before they even get to the first song that The Great Migration is more than an album, it's a show.
The Great Migration is a great debut for Bronze Nazareth, the RZA's newest protégé. Bronze was previously making some noise in some inner hip hop circles prior to the album with his, 'Thought for food' mix cd, which he now proved was just a sample of what was to come.
The super producer is not new to the game. He has worked in the past with artists like GZA, Ras Kass, Del the Funkee Homosapien, Black Market Militia, Afu-Ra and Planet Asia, to name a few.
Bronze claims to be a student in the school of life, and by the content expressed on the album, it seems that he very well is. Everything to do with the trials and tribulations of life is covered in some way or manner on the album.
The record is filled with great soulful sampling as well as some samples from popular hip-hop bangers. Keeping true to the Wu-tang style of production the album has a few skits as well as a few instrumental breaks.
