Action Bronson

Action Bronson -- the Queens-based rapper/gourmet chef known for handing out weed and steak dinners during live performances -- fit the Bonnaroo vibe like an extra large glove. He passed blunts to the soundboard operator, asked the audience to toss drugs onstage (they obliged), and routinely ventured not only into the crowd but outside of the performance tent itself. With just an announcement of "the show's out here now," Bronson left most of the crowd dumbstruck as he disappeared from view, circled the stage, and finally returned to a hero's welcome. Once his hour-long, freestyle-heavy set ended (after a performance of his debauchery-heavy "Hookers at the Point"), the crowd was left chanting his name, understandably thirsty for even more. [Billboard]
Queens rapper Action Bronson played Bonnaroo this past weekend, and this coming weekend (6/21), he'll play Delaware's Firefly Music Festival. After that, he'll return home to NYC to play a show at Santos Party House on June 25 with Harry Fraud, who produced Bronson's new EP, SAAAB Stories, which is out now and can be streamed via Spotify (where it premiered) below. Bronson also said in an interview with Whoo Kid (via HipHopDX) that it's going to be his last one-producer project, which he has many of, including Rare Chandeliers with The Alchemist, Blue Chips with Party Supplies, and more.

Tickets for the Santos show are on sale now. All upcoming dates are listed, along with the SAAAB Stories stream, below...

Nice misogyny, bro. Accepting outdated signifiers as authenticity. Way cool.

Hot girls in compromising positions are always welcome on album covers IMO. Was Bryan Ferry a misogynist too?

Harry Fraud by far the best producer ive heard. More and more producers need to take the scene instead of rappers.
