Shortly into his 4pm set, Action Bronson pointed to Citi Field and said the he once worked in the stadium as a cook. “Due to some unfortunate circumstances, I was fired,” he said. The Queens native made a triumphant return to the borough on Sunday with a set that reminded everyone why he has become one of the biggest names in hip-hop. The amount of cannabis that Bronson consumed during his hour on stage was not a surprise to anyone who’s familiar with his love of the stuff, but it was perhaps the most impressive aspect of the show. The dude took several smoke breaks during the set, encouraging the audience to join him in the process. - [Time Out]

Action Bronson played Queens festival The Meadows on Sunday (9/17) where he plugged both his new album, Blue Chips 7000, and his new cookbook/memoir, Fuck That's Delicious, both of which are out now. Check out pictures in the gallery above and video from his Meadows set, plus video of him on Late Night with Seth Meyers plugging the book, below.

With The Meadows behind him, Action has added a couple NYC-area shows to his fall tour, including NJ's Starland Ballroom on December 1 and NYC's Terminal 5 on December 6. Tickets for both of those shows Friday, September 22 at 10 AM with various presales starting beforehand.
