Watch Animated Action Bronson As An Angry Taco Truck Owner On Lucas Bros. Moving Co.

An animated Action Bronson appeared in a teaser for Lucas Bros. Moving Co. on Fox's Animation Domination last night as an aggressively angry taco truck owner who flips out at the Lucas Brothers. I witnessed Chef Bam Bam man his own food truck at the Bushwick Block Party two summers ago -- but I didn't… More »

Joey Bada$$ – “Run Up On Ya” (Feat. Action Bronson & Elle Varner)

If Malia Obama really is a Joey Bada$$ fan, America is going to have to face the sobering truth that, somewhere in the White House, a child is listening to Action Bronson rapping about appearing on the cover of Tiger Beat and breaking a whistle off in someone's ass. I know it's a hard thing… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

This was the first full week of 2015, and the week in which winter fully set in on most of the country. (As Slate weather writer Eric Holthaus noted yesterday: "It’s so cold out (how cold is it??) that Minneapolis cancelled school today. Minneapolis!") NYC felt it too; it snowed here all morning, and thi… 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 »

The 40 Best Music Videos Of 2014

Next year, YouTube will celebrate its 10th anniversary. For nearly a decade, then, music videos have belonged almost entirely to the internet. Once upon a time, video directors made their work for TV, expecting you to run across their images when you were flipping through channels. By the time YouTube hit its second year, that… More »

Watch Young Thug, Killer Mike, Danny Brown, Pusha T, & Dozens More On 42-Minute Posse Cut “The Rap Monument”

Up until today, the Game's 13-minute, 25-rapper "One Blood" remix has been the final word in absurd, overlong rap posse cuts. But now Noisey & Hennessy have outdone it by putting together the 42-minute, 36-rapper "The Rap Monument." The new track has verses from a deeply ridiculous number of rappers. Plenty of them are relative… More »

Santa Action Bronson Threw A TV, PS4, XBox Into The Crowd Last Night

Action Bronson arguably looks more like Santa Claus than any other rapper, and he played the part last night. During his set at the Observatory in Santa Ana, California last night, Bronson threw a bunch of expensive electronic merchandise into the crowd, including flat-screen TVs, a PS4, an XBox, and an iPad. Check out footage… More »

Watch Jonah Hill Cover Drake, Scarlett Johansson Cover New Order, Stephen Malkmus Cover The Black Crowes, Jarvis Cocker Cover Celine Dion For Vice’s 20th Birthday In Brooklyn

There was a not-entirely-common sight down around the Brooklyn Navy Yard last night. Dozens of cabs lined the street, because depending on where you're coming from the Navy Yard can kind of be a pain to get to, and also because NYC's been doing this thing where it's decided to just rain constantly in December,… More »

Vice is throwing an invite-only party tomorrow night in Brooklyn to celebrate their 20th anniversary, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner -- who will be part of the house band along with Andrew Wyatt, Pauli PSM, and Jack Lawrence -- posted the lineup for the event on his Twitter account tonight.

Action Bronson & Danny Brown – “Bad News” (Prod. The Alchemist)

The newly re-released Grand Theft Auto V features a pile of new songs, and one of those songs is "Bad News," in which singular rap bugout specialists (and former tourmates) Action Bronson and Danny Brown double-team a hectic Alchemist beat. These guys are, as ever, absolute characters, and it's a blast to hear them bounce… More »

Watch Killer Mike & Action Bronson’s Eric Andre Show Treadmill Rap Battle

The Eric Andre Show is a sort of absurdist-comedy Adult Swim variety show, and every episode lasts a grand total of 15 minutes. Tonight's episode has appearances from Killer Mike and Action Bronson, and neither is on the show for long. The two rap-battle each other while running on treadmills, and neither of them i… More »

Pharrell headlined Odd Future's annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles over the weekend, and a couple notable things happened during his set.

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – “Knicks (Remix)” (Feat. Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$ & Ransom)

Earlier this year, Freddie Gibbs and Madlib teamed up to release Piñata, their excellent collaborative album. One of the few album tracks that didn't have any guest rappers was the floaty sneer "Knicks." But now there's a new version of the song with a bunch of other rappers. Gibbs and Madlib will release their KnicksMore »

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 Had Amazing Seats For Derek Jeter’s Last Yankee Stadium Game

Last night, Yankees legend Derek Jeter played his last game at Yankee Stadium, playing against the Orioles. In his final at-bat, he hit a walk-off single that won the game for his team. It was pretty incredible, and I say this as an Orioles fan. If you were watching the game, you may have noticed… More »

Riff Raff – “Rookies Of The Future” (Feat. Action Bronson)

Weirdo white-rap hedonists Riff Raff and Action Bronson have teamed up a handful of times in the past, most notably on "Bird On A Wire," the song that convinced more than a few that Riff Raff can rap like a motherfucker when he's in the right frame of mind. The two have joined forces agai… More »

Hear An Untitled New Song By Action Bronson And Hudson Mohawke

Action Bronson typically sounds most at home rapping over bright, funky samples culled from YouTube clips by frequent collaborator Party Supplies, beats as colorful and free-associative as the Queens rapper's flow. But he sure sounds good over Hudson Mohawke's latest dystopian discharge. Mohawke (pictured) debuted the short, as-yet-untitled collaboration during his Boiler Room set last… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This was generally a busy week, music-video-wise, but the biggest stories were two flashy, conversation-starting pop videos that seemed to represent two different sides of an ideological divide, even though the women who made the two videos are friends and everything. On the one side, there was Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off," which I didn't… More »

Action Bronson – “Easy Rider” Video

"Easy Rider," the badass Party Supplies-produced single from Action Bronson's forthcoming album Mr. Wonderful, has Bronson going in over a fog of psych-rock samples. Given the acid-rock pedigree and the song's title, it's only right that the video has Bronson in a pastiche of the biker movies of the '60s and '70s. Bronson always came… More »
