Action Bronson is a rapper/chef from New York City. There is only one photo of him in existence and it is this one. Nah, just kidding. There’s plenty of pictures of Action Bronson out there. Like this one and this one and, okay, fine, this one is an actual picture of Action Bronson. Party Supplies is a producer, also based out of New York, who teamed up with Bronson for their acclaimed Blue Chips mixtape last year. As you may or may not know (if you do, just humor me, okay?), Blue Chips was (very loosely) based on the 1994 Nick Nolte basketball film of the same title. While Blue Chips (movie) never had a sequel, one question has lingered in scholars’ minds: what if it did have a sequel? This is a question that Blue Chips 2, the new mixtape from Action Bronson and Party Supplies, intends to answer.
Assuming all is well in the world, Blue Chips 2 should be out November 1, which is today; good news: it’s here! If you’re not quite ready for it yet, introduce yourself by watching the tape’s teaser trailer, featuring Bronson as a high-powered NBA mogul and Party Supplies as, I don’t know, some guy? According to the tape’s press release, the trailer alludes to his involvement in the 1995 Eastern Conference semifinals game 7 between the Knicks and Pacers. If you know anything about basketball, those words may mean something to you.
If you’d like to know more about Action Bronson and the concept of food, check out the food series he’s doing with Vice. He’ll also be putting out a new full-length album through VICE/Atlantic at some point next year. It is tentatively titled “Man Forced to Eat Own Beard,” in my mind.
