Much has been written about Queens' own Action Bronson, half rapper,half chef, always stoned and never disappointing. His semi-recent rise to success has come off of his imaginative storytelling and no BS attitude. His lyrics reflect his time back home, mixed with the best metaphors around that include everything from gourmet food items to classic WWF wrestlers and NBA players. The whole package might be a bust if it wasn't for the producing genius of Party Supplies, a fellow New Yorker with a penchant for just the right sample to use to kick off the beat Bronson is about to destroy. Together, they are an unstoppable duo and have already created two modern classics in Blue Chips and Blue Chips 2.

The latter was on my personal top ten list for 2013 and had some of the best rhymes heard in a long time. Bam Bam nearly yells his lyrics over the beat, inciting feelings of Ghostface Killer as he explains how he ran from the cops or scored the biggest bag of weed ever seen. Splice this with The Champs' "Tequila" or another track that goes from Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" into Phil Collins' "Sussudio" and you have the makings for an overly-entertaining production. Bronson never fails to capitalize on the weight of the selected backing track and instead pays semi-homage to it by using the peaks and valleys exactly like a front man would. This is more than just another rapper from the East Coast, instead we have something special in Bronson that has to be seen live to truly appreciate. Catch the show this Friday for 20 bucks and don't be afraid of the contact high you are nearly guaranteed to get.
