    damn i've been sleeping on this. i've banged it several times when it came out but it never clicked with me. gave it another chance now, a few years later, and YES Bronze delivers!! i admit he is a great producer, the beats on here are mostly straight fire. he got some real good drums to his shit and he picks ill samples to rhyme over. "The Pain", "Bronzemen", "More Than Gold", "Rare Breed", "Hear What I Say", "Good Morning", etc. not a masterpiece or anything but definitely dope!

    This joint is a decade old today. A real renaissance album for hardcore Wu fans.

    Toast to 10 years!

    Damn, I was 20 when this dropped. Has to be my favorite album of the last 10 years, a true classic... Like dude earlier said it's on par with Madvillainy and Supreme Clientele for me


    A great opening to the career and movement of Bronze


    The time when this dropped was also a time when Wu Corp was flourishing, a lot of intelligent and cool posters posting here frequently. Even Bronze himself stopping by for direct interaction with the fans occasionally..


    And it was this forum (and IIRC the Chambermusik forum) that introduced me to the work of Bronze originally. Birth of a Prince and certainly Wu Meets Indie Culture were the first time I heard Bronze's work, then it was digging through the older tracks, the snippets, TGM sampler, and that old green website's beats that really drew me in to Bronze's art. Found all that shit thru here.


    Made some great friends in diff parts of the globe on the strength of a shared passion for this album.... S/O to Kriszy Substance, Ya Bane, and others


    I need to write a full length review of this album, somehow I never have




    Body heavy metal, bet I'll only travel on frowning horses
    Inhale the forest, fled the house of a thousand corpses
    Housing my name in ya mouth will get ya John Booth'd
    I let myself outta my jail cuz I'm the TRUTH
    Eyes shimmer like rivers in broken bottles of Smirnoff
    Successions of sounds splash from windows spillin' off
    Still emboss my logo cough death on mogul's calls
    Skin clicks like 18 Bronzemen in the halls




    I remember my anticipation before this dropped, was so looking forward to hearing an entire album of Bronze beats and thought his lyrics would probably be okay.

    I can remember being completely shocked during my first few listens about how far off my expectations were.

    Ended up being an album whose lyrics became literature for me to dissect and contemplate for what's now been a decade.

    And the beats and whole energy and vibe of this album became the musical guide to my life during that whole period (2006-2008 a time when I graduated college and up and moved out of home in New York to California on a migration).

    An instant classic, this shit never gets old for me.

    Some tracks, like "$ (Cash Rule)" and "The Great Migration" have gotten better and better over time, the imagery and feeling soaking in more fully.

    Remember this video?

    Twelve years ago today. Cannot get tired of this album. I blew up my subwoofers with Bronzeman a few weeks ago

    Definitely. Great Migration is Wu Tang's answer to College Dropout.
