Bronze Nazareth is an international underground hip hop artist and producer hailing from Detroit, MI. Bronze was picked up by RZA as a Wu Tang producer in 2002. Bronze was introduced to the world in 2003 via his production on RZA’s “Birth of a Prince” album. For years he continued making connections and building his credits on the independent scene. In 2005, Bronze helped introduce a younger generation to Wu Tang by producing on “Wu Tang Meets The Indie Culture” (selected by The Source Magazine as Independent Album of the Year (2005)). Bronze signed to Babygrande records in 2006 and released his first solo album “The Great Migration”. The album received critical acclaim, and was also a financial success. Next, Nazareth went on to form his own group, The Wisemen, who released yet another critically acclaimed album, “Wisemen Approaching” in 2007.
In the years that followed, Bronze’s music fueled the sale of hundreds-of-thousands of units and left its own indelible imprint upon hip hop, and the Wu-Tang legacy. He has worked with the likes of RZA, Raekwon, GZA, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, Royce 5’9, Canibus, Apollo Brown, Sean Price, Kxng Crooked (Shady), Roc Marciano, Planet Asia, Boldy James, and many more notable acts.
In 2012, Bronze Nazareth landed a part of the production for New York Knicks anthem “NY Made”. In 2013 Bronze inked a deal with indie label Man Bites Dog Records, and successfully release his “Blenders EP”. 2014 brought two more critically acclaimed albums — Bronze Nazareth & Willie the Kid’s “The Living Daylights” and a 5th solo project “Thought for Food of Volume 3”. Bronze Nazareth also produced the commercial for Samsung’s Galaxy S5 promo run to finish out the year.
Bronze’s recent work includes 2015’s critically acclaimed collaboration album with Canibus entitled “Time Flies, Life Dies, Phoenix Rise” which debuted at #49 and Billboards top 100 rap albums, #30 (top 100 Hip Hop & R&B) and #135 (top 200 indie albums). Bronze next landed a deal to do an official album with Ghostface Killah titled “The Ghost Files: The Bronze Tape” again hitting billboard at #64 (Rap top 100) and 89 (R&B/Hip Hop) in 2018.
In 2019 Bronze Nazareth further cemented his legacy by releasing a joint project with Kxng Crooked of Slaughterhouse. The album, Gravitas was an immediate success both critically and financially. This set is often regarded as Kxng Crooked best album.
2021 would prove to b one of Nazareth’s most successful years in recent memory. Right away, in January the Bronzeman joined with London, UK star Leaf Dog (4 Owls) expertly churning out the highly regarded “Bundle Raps”. Bronze Nazareth made his return to the mic. In April, switching roles Bronze went on to fully produce “Season of the Seven” a joint album with rising star, Recognize Ali. Another critically acclaimed masterpiece, made for another great year for the Detroit workhorse. Still, he wasn’t done.
Perhaps his most successful and impactful release in his career, Bronze went on to combine talents with the legendary Roc Marciano. With Marciano handling production duties (as well as a couple from Nazareth) Nazareth again takes to the mic and lays out his best work since Great Migration. Lauded by critics and fans, the album “Ekphrasis” is arguably Bronze Nazareth’s best – talent wise and commercially. Finally, Nazareth will release his 6th solo studio album titled ‘If You’re Worried You Should Be’ in 2022. Legendary longevity, Bronze Nazareth’s star continues to rise.
