Crate Digging: The Great Migration

by Bronze Nazareth

This is one album that has been criminally over-looked. Anyone who enjoys that classic Wu-Tang sound would find much here to be happy with, as Wu affiliate and (sometimes uncredited) producer Bronze Nazareth blazed his own trail in 2006.

The album plays around with that raw Wu street sound, with dark beats and sometimes opaque lyrics. Bronze is an excellent producer, and an accomplished emcee. Songs like 'Black Royalty' really show his versatility - he's playing in RZA's sandbox, but he's brought his own toys.
