Willie The Kid and Bronze Nazareth have collaborated on a musical effort of grandiose proportions. Appropriately entitled ‘The Living Daylights’ the LP is a 13-track venture containing the earthy and whimsical sound of Bronze Nazareth’s production and the colorfully complex wizardry of Willie The Kid’s literary prose. The collaboration is long over due as both Willie and Bronze are natives of Grand Rapids, MI. The two finally match wits on a musical landscape which blends the new age, boom-bap sample driven production from Bronze Nazareth’s legendary Wu-Tang Clan infused sound; with the vibrant and refreshingly intricate disposition of Willie the kid’s bristly rhymes.

EXCERPT: As member of the Wu-Tang Clan and part of the hip-hop group Wisemen; Bronze has produced countless tracks for the Clan and heavily contributed his production on “Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture.” About a month ago I shot a video for Bronze Nazareth’s “Hanging On” track which will be featured on his third installment for the “Thought For Food” mixtape series. We had a great time shooting in Detroit’s historic Whittier building.

Bronze Nazareth Q&A on SoulTrain.com by Mr. Joe Walker
EXCERPT: Critically-adored as a producer and recording artist, Nazareth is literally a stand-up guy; for this exclusive SoulTrain.com interview the Wisemen member and Wu-Tang affiliate stood the entire time, leaning casually against a plain white wall while never breaking eye contact. “I see the big picture better than I ever have,” says the Grand Rapids, MI native, born Justin Cross. “I’m ready for everything.”[Top]
PRODUCED BY BRONZE NAZARETH
Phillie’s solo debut album “Welcome to the Detroit Zoo” is out now! Along with witty rhymes and clever wordplay, the album is also a full serving of Bronze Nazareth production. The emotionally driven soundscapes only enhance Phillie’s rhymes. You can listen to this album two different ways, zone out on the music alone, or sink your mind into the lyrics and travel with Phillie to the destinations he provides.
Phillie’s hunger gives “Welcome To The Detroit Zoo” a refreshingly honest feel and showcases Phillie’s life journey on Detroit’s infamous ‘Number Streets’. The album is a mix of street poetry, lyricism, life lessons, and pure entertainment. Phillie possesses a sense of humor and a refreshing perspective among the dreary backdrop of his hometown of Detroit.
