The Living Daylights/Willie the Kid and Bronze Nazareth/ALC|
You can tell bronze nazareth helped produce some wu-tang members’ solo albums, because there are the kung-fu skits, soul singing, and bass-y grooves everywhere on this. Willie’s apparently pretty underrated but this album’s getting much-deserved hype online. It’s bright and sparkly while preserving the same dank underground feel I got from ghostface killah’s stuff. The features fit perfectly and the boom-bap sound is prevalent.
