Bron G is a native of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, which has given us the likes of 9th Wonder, Pam Grier (Foxy Brown), Ben Folds, Jackee’ Harry (227), Chris Paul (New Orleans Hornets), and Josh Howard (Dallas Mavericks) just to name a few. He is a Hip-Hop Emcee, Poet, Community Activist, Mentor, College Graduate, and was drafted by a Minor League Pro Basketball Team in 2001.
After receiving the call of God to spread the Gospel through ministry, Bron tapped into something that he had been running from for many years: music! Steeped in Gospel Music from his father, Bronal Martin, who sung with “The Mighty Wonders” (album Swing Low is in the Smithsonian Institute), “The Brooklyn All Stars”, and a brief stint with “The Drifters”, he has always been around music. From backstage, meeting the likes of Joe Ligon (lead singer of The Mighty Clouds of Joy), Shirley Caesar, Willie Banks, Willie Neal Johnson (Gospel Keynotes), Luther Barnes, Howard “Slim” Hunt, and the Five Blind Boys, to attending his father’s rehearsals as a pre-teen, he knew he would be involved with music eventually. After writing his first rhymes in Elementary School after hearing "La Di Da Di" by Slick Rick; and being inspired by Run-DMC, KRS-One, Rakim, and later Big Daddy Kane, he finally sought the face of God about rap music after many years, and knew that God had given him this gift to use for Him! There are a large group of individuals from the south that are true lyricists that express their lyricism through originality, quality, and with the sole purpose of speaking to the hearts and souls of men and women, persuading them to look within themselves and make a change. Bron G is a part of that group of individuals! Being a born again Christian from a very young age, he has never neglected the foundation on which he has stood on: Jesus Christ being the chief cornerstone. Moreover, showing the light not just by what he says, but how he actually lives.
His most notable performances in recent years have been the National Black Theater Festival in 2007 (Poetry Slam hosted by Malcolm Jamaal Warner), House The Evolution (stage play which featured DeWayne Woods), I Am Magazine Gospel Music Showcase (Minneapolis, MN), President Barack Obama’s Rally in Winston-Salem (along with actors and actresses from “The Wire”), and the 2009 Holy Hip Hop Awards. Bron can also be found ministering on almost a weekly basis at The Fellowship in Winston-Salem, NC, or, Café Jams in Greensboro, NC.
The most recent album in the Bron G. Discography is ChristClassicJazz! ChristClassicJazz is a smooth, musical, organic hip-hop experience with a powerful message, and head knocking beats! The CD is done and blended like a mixtape, but the beats and production are done in house by Bron's core of producers. This is a must have for your CD collection if you are a fan of Hip-Hop! This is an instant classic!
Bron G. currently lives in Winston-Salem, NC, where he is very active in the community of his native city!
