Wu-Elements Bronze Nazareth Presents The Wisemen
« on: February 02, 2007, 08:59:51 AM »
Renowned Wu-Tang affiliate & RZA producer pairs with three of Detroit’s finest up & coming for the debut album, "Wisemen Approaching," featuring guest appearances from GZA/Genius, Killah Priest, Vast Aire, Planet Asia & more.

Ardent followers of early ‘90’s hip-hop such as the Wu-Tang Clan, A Tribe Called Quest, Prince Paul & even the inimitable Kool G. Rap, The Wisemen was born equally from necessity as well as an underlying purpose: to revive the enlightened aesthetic of the so-called “golden era” of hip-hop.

Spearheaded by Bronze Nazareth, a Detroit producer/emcee with deep ties to the RZA of the seminal Wu-Tang Clan, the group is rounded out by Detroit stalwarts Kevlaar 7, Phillie and Salute (the Kid). The name
"Wisemen” refers to the individual members’ commitment to prudence in the face of adversity, an ideology spawned from each emcee’s proven perseverance in the face of hardships.

Finding a common catharsis in music, Bronze & Kevlaar originally formed a group entitled “The Unknown.” After releasing an album in the late ‘90’s that garnered a healthy level of internet and local buzz, Bronze’s production soon caught the eye of Wu-Tang impresario RZA. Bronze’s first break came when RZA tapped him to produce a few tracks on his highly lauded solo LP "Birth Of A Prince." Shortly thereafter, Bronze and Kevlaar 7 began discussing the formation of a new group, and Bronze set out to find his constituents.

In 2005, Bronze Nazareth’s beats and rhymes were highlighted on the underground smash Think Differently Music: "Wu-Tang Meets The Indie
Culture." 2006 saw the release of Bronze’s solo debut, "The Great
Migration," to both critical and commercial fanfare. Now, with the long
awaited 2007 release of Wisemen Approaching, the cerebrally menacing
Wisemen unleash their debut aural assault, drawing generously from the Wu-Tang blueprint of pensive soundscapes, mesmerizing beats, bleeding, emotive piano riffs and sprinklings of soul.

Featuring a slew of guest appearances including GZA/Genius of the
Wu-Tang Clan, Sunz of Man core constituent Killah Priest, Vast Aire of
Cannibal Ox, Prodigal Sunn & more as well as production by Bronze
Nazareth, Kevvlar 7, amongst others, "Wisemen Approaching" is an
historic snapshot of four emcees guided by a common purpose, hardened by experience but optimistic about hip-hop’s future. They’re fighting hip-hop’s noble fight: a return to the fundamental pursuit of beats, rhymes and life.
