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.

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. Finally, in 2021 Bronze Nazareth joined with London, UK star Leaf Dog (4 Owls). Churning out the highly regarded “Bundle Raps”, Bronze Nazareth returned to the mic and the album is on many album of the year lists already in early 2021.
Nazareth will release his 6th solo studio album titled ‘If You’re Worried You Should Be’ in 2021, as well as projects with Recognize Ali (Season of the Se7en) and collaborations with two more of this generation’s best. Legendary longevity, Bronze Nazareth’s star continues to rise.
