Action Bronson preps new album, shares "Actin' Crazy" and freestyle: fuck, that's delicious!

It’s customary to mention Ghostface Killah when speaking of Action Bronson, and I’m not gonna buck that trend: there’s more than a passing similarity between the two, in both cadence and tone of voice. It’s perfect ammo for Bronsolino’s haters, but it’d be selling him wayyy short to simply dismiss him as a “bootleg ghost face” (s/o @AZEALIABANKS for the now-deleted quotable). In fact, dude is beyond the whole GFK-soundalike thing these days. He’s probably the most convincing food-rapper since the guy behind Mm..Food, for one; he’s also responsible for some of the most capital-F Fun tapes in recent memory, with Blue Chips and Rare Chandeliers earning him a fair few accolades back in 2012. Fast-forward a few years and a steady stream of material since then, and he’s finally ready to pop off his major-label debut LP, titled Mr. Wonderful. ’S him alright.

Here’s the low-down: 13 tracks, features from Chance the Rapper, Meyhem Lauren, Big Body Bes, Party Supplies, and Chauncey Sherod, production from Mark Ronson, Noah “40” Shebib, and the Alchemist, and a guaranteed myriad of food/drugs/sex subject matter from Mr. Wonderful himself. It’s out on March 24 via VICE/Atlantic, and it should prove to be the final nail in the coffin of the fuckbois who feel the need to bring up Ghostface any time Action Bronson is discussed, ‘cos if we’re being real, the Wu-Tang member hasn’t come up with anything quite as fresh as this in years. Just before the announcement came, he released “Actin’ Crazy” with the aforementioned 40 on the boards. It’s pretty good, but don’t just take my word for it: give it a spin down below.

But wait: there’s more! Not content with just another promo single, Action also recently came through with a freestyle for Funkmaster Flex, which you can watch right here. Spittin’ over Prodigy’s “Keep It Thoro” beat, he not only delivered a performance so HOT that he managed to dislodge his own damn headphones, but he immediately recovered from the incident with “If I die change my suit four times at the wake / And make sure I get my dick sucked also”! New York rappers have a great history of totally warranted braggadocio, and you can count Bronsolino amongst them. In fact, he probably said it best himself: SPPPPPAAAAAZZZZZZEEEDDDDD.
