Watch Action Bronson Reenact The Recording Studio Scene From Boogie Nights

There Will Be Blood is a great, great movie, but for my money, Paul Thomas Anderson’s best film to date is 1997’s Boogie Nights, about the rise and fall of fictional porn star Dirk Diggler (played by Mark Wahlberg). At the crest of that fall, a delusional, coked-out Diggler attempts to move from porn to… More »

Action Bronson – “Actin Crazy” + Mr. Wonderful Details

Action Bronson’s Mr. Wonderful feels like it’s been a long time coming: He first teased the album back in May of last year, then dropped “Easy Rider” at the end of the summer. Since then — Azealia Banks beefs aside — the New York rapper has been pretty quiet. Lo and behold, he’s just shared… More »

Party Supplies – “The Light In The Addict” (Feat. Action Bronson & Black Atlass)

Action Bronson and the New York producer Party Supplies have already joined forces for two ridiculously entertaining mixtapes, Blue Chips and Blue Chips 2. And now Bronson is helping out on “The Light In The Addict,” a weirdly evocative new soul-blues track from Party Supplies. The Bronson verse on the intro is pretty much perfect,… More »

Action Bronson – “Easy Rider”

Queens rap original Action Bronson is at work on a new album called Mr. Wonderful, and for the song “Easy Rider,” he teamed up with Party Supplies, the producer who worked with him on his great Blue Chips and Blue Chips 2 mixtapes. On “Easy Rider,” Bronson goes in over a way-out psych-rock organ loop,… More »

Cam’ron & A-Trak – “Humphrey”

Harlem rap prince Cam’ron and dance-music mogul A-Trak have a collaborative EP called Federal Reserve on the way, and it’s potentially going to be awesome, but I was a bit worried that it would just be latter-day Cam rapping awkwardly over squelching trap beats. “Humphrey,” the first track we’ve heard from the EP, is enough… More »

The 40 Best Rap Albums Of 2013

Last year, there was one album — Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City — that united virtually the entire rap-listening public in adoration. This year, no such luck. Many heard my #1 pick of the year (and you can probably already guess what it is) as the work of a sonic visionary, and plenty more… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I was embarrassingly excited for it, and it took until near the end of Kanye West’s “Bound 2” video for me to contemplate the possibility that it sucks. But yes, I’m pretty sure it sucks. There’s some definite trolling involved, what with the sweeping Hallmark-card opening and the deranged mean-mugging and the beyond-obvious greenscreening. But… More »

Action Bronson & Party Supplies – “Amadu Diablo” Video

On “Amadu Diablo,” one of the many freakily awesome tracks from Action Bronson and Partly Supplies’ wonderful Blue Chips 2 mixtape, Bronson raps delirious nonsense over Tracy Chapman’s “Give Me One Reason.” And in director Rik Cordero’s new video for the track, Bronson and Party Supplies pay tribute to MTV Unplugged by getting high, giggling… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Action Bronson & Party Supplies Blue Chips 2

It’s not the most natural fit, but Action Bronson can make sense in the context of radio-rap. His Wiz Khalifa collab “The Rockers,” for instance, does the smeary-synth thing and works on Hot 97 amidst all the 2 Chainz/Drake stuff, even if Bronson is just muttering about semi-obscure pro wrestlers on the hook. Still, thi… More »

Download Action Bronson & Party Supplies Blue Chips 2

Last year, the Queens rapper Action Bronson and the Brooklyn producer Party Supplies joined forces to make the elegantly slapdash Blue Chips, which ended up being my favorite mixtape of 2012. And now they’ve done it again. Late last night, Bronson and Party Supplies dropped the big sequel, a new mixtape produced entirely by Party… More »

Action Bronson – “Practice”

Rapper Action Bronson and producer Party Supplies put out one of our favorite hip-hop albums of last year, and now we’re closing in on the release of the sequel. Blue Chips 2’s newest track “Practice,” features samples from Allen Iverson’s infamous (and ridiculous) rant about “practice” in 2002. You can listen to it below and… More »

Action Bronson & Party Supplies – “Steve Wynn” Video

Back in March, Action Bronson and producer Party Supplies got together to release Blue Chips, one of the year’s best mixtapes. And now we get the video for “Steve Wynn,” a gleefully ridiculous affair in which a scrawny nerd takes some bath salts, hulks out, and gets revenge on some bullies at the gym. Bronson’… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Action Bronson & Party Supplies Blue Chips

I skipped this column last week because the entire Stereogum crew was at SXSW, but a whole lot happened in the mixtape universe in the past two weeks. Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Allderice turns out to be a massively pleasant distillation of every float-rap thing that guy does right, and its release was such a big… More »

Download Action Bronson & Party Supplies Blue Chips Mixtape

Discerning rap nerds have had today’s date circled on their calendars for a while, since today is the day Queens rap monster Action Bronson and producer Party Supplies release their collaborative mixtape Blue Chips.

The great and ascendant New York rapper Action Bronson has teamed with producer Party Supplies for a new mixtape called Blue Chips that’s set to arrive in about a week. Below, we’ve got a video for the new track “Hookers At The Point,” a nasty, unflinching look at the prostitutes and junkies to be found… More »
