KXNG Crooked and Wu-Tang Clan affiliate Bronze Nazareth have announced their new collaborative project Gravitas, which is expected to arrive on December 13 Fat Beats/Holy Toledo Productions.
Ahead of the release, the duo has dropped off a single from the project called “I Can Still Remember.”
“I could try to think of something deep to say about the album or I could think of something really fly to say about it, but the realest thing I can tell you is — just listen to it,” Crooked tells RealStreetRadio. “It speaks for itself.”
The upcoming album boasts several notable artists, including RZA, Ghostface Killah, DMX, Snoop Dogg, Royce Da 5’9, Hus Kingpin, LA The Darkman, Planet Asia, Killah Priest, Bishop Lamont, Benny the Butcher and .38 Spesh, among others.
“I believe true artists like Crook put it all on the track, meaning they show you who they are,” Bronze says. “There’s artists that people feel like they know because they lay it all out in the music. I felt his music to that extent.
“A year or two after we met, I ended up on the 2077 Tour as support for Crook and we’ve been cool since. The importance of this project is simple to me — great bars and great production. I and countless others regard him as one of the greats. I’d put Crook up against anybody — bar-for-bar, double entendres, word play, flow patterns, feel. Bruh has it all.”
Gravitas merch, CD, cassette, digital and more are available for pre-order here.
