Action Bronson a.k.a Bronsolini has built-up quite the cult following these last two years. The chef-turned-rapper from Flushing Queens, NY has been a major presence in the resurgence of Hip-Hop’s birthplace along with fellow New Yorkers A$AP Rock and Joey Bada$$.
Keeping the momentum going the big-belly-blunt-smoking-bearded emcee has hooked up with one of Hip-Hop’s most renowned producers, The Alchemist for their ‘Rare Chandeliers’ mixtape, which is available to download right now for free. Alchemist’s signature style compliments Bronson’s witty (and downright peculiar) wordplay, which is dripping with that ‘Nuuu Yawk’ bravado that’s been missing from hip-hop for more than a decade. ‘Rare Chandeliers’ also features New York rappers Styles P (The Lox, D-Block and The Ruff Ryders), Roc Marciano and Sean Price as well as Schoolboy Q from Black Hippy and Evidence from Dilated Peoples.
Action Bronson will be down in the UK this December stopping first at the Manchester Academy 3 on the 14th before heading to The Garage in London on the 16th. If you haven’t had the pleasure of going to one of his shows here’s what goes down: 1) comedy and shenanigans and 2) the possibility of Bronson sharing his stacks-upon-stacks of ‘herbal’ remedies with the crowd.
