Action Bronson

Queens rapper Action Bronson, who has a few great mixtapes under his belt and quickly escalated to playing large venues recently announced via twitter that he's signed with Warner Bros imprint VICE Records, making him labelmates with Black Lips, OFF!, and others. He tweeted, "Vice/Warner the label. I promise to never make candy cane bullshit music as long as I live!!!!!!!"

As mentioned, Action Bronson will play a free Converse Rubber Tracks show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on August 23 with Meyhem Lauren, Flatbush Zombies, and Tanya Morgan. Admission is first come, first served, but we're also giving away a pair of VIP tickets which guarantee you entry and get you into the VIP balcony, plus a $250 Converse gift card. Details on how to enter and the flier for this show are below.

Before that show, Action Bronson will be heading to Chicago for their Mad Decent Block Party. He didn't play the NYC party but his associate Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire did. Bronson will also be at the Holmdel, NJ stop for Rock the Bells when it hits PNC Bank Arts Center from September 1-2. He plays on the Sunday (9/2) along with sets by Nas, Deltron 3030 Curren$y, Cheif Keef, DJ Quik, and many others. Tickets for Rock the Bells NJ are still available. Check out the full schedule HERE.

Action Bronson recently contributed his vocals to UK producer Metabeats for the song, "Hookers," off his upcoming album, Caviar Crackle. Stream that song and check out a list of all upcoming dates, and the contest details and flier for the MHOW show below.

I don't get what the appeal is of this guy. He sounds just like Ghostface and all his rhymes are about nothing. Just random shyte.

Sad to see a progressive site like BrooklynVegan supporting a guy who assaulted transgender person for fun.
