iHipHop Distribution is proud to announce the release of Bronze Nazareth’s sophomore album, School For The Blindman. Thought of as Detroit’s counterpart to Wu-Tang Clan leader RZA, Bronze has moved beyond the boundaries of a producer and proven himself as a lyricist through his performances on The Great Migration (2006), Wisemen Approaching (2007) and Children Of A Lesser God (2010). Heralded as a super-producer for his work on Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture, Volume One, Bronze has remained integral to the Clan’s sound for the past decade. With appearances on seminal Wu-Tang Clan projects ranging from RZA’s Birth Of A Prince to Raekwon’s Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang, Bronze has established himself as a purveyor of the gritty sound that defines the Clan’s sound. Don’t be fooled; despite studying under the tutelage of RZA, Bronze’s style is all his own, with rhymes to match. “If anyone’s going to be the figurehead for the sprawling second and third waves of Wu-Tang Clan affiliates” writes Daniel Levin Becker of Dusted Magazine, “it might as well be Detroit’s Bronze Nazareth.”
With production handled almost entirely by Bronze himself, School For The Blindman is a necessity for any Wu-Tang fan, with guest appearances from RZA, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa, Canibus, Killah Preist, La The Darkman, Willie The Kid, and The Wisemen.
The album’s first single, “Fresh From The Morgue” features Bronze’s longtime mentor, RZA. The Detroit and Killah Hills natives unite as the Bronzeman and the Abbot lurk from the abyss to flow over an ominous instrumental composed of strings and a soulful vocal sample. Wu-Tang fans and hip-hop purists are sure to appreciate how Bronze uses his unique production to build upon the foundation RZA created.
School For The Blindman drops September 13th on iHipHop Distribution.
