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.

Earlier this year, Freddie Gibbs and Madlib teamed up to release Piñata, their excellent collaborative album.

Action Bronson and the New York producer Party Supplies have already joined forces for two ridiculously entertaining mixtapes, Blue Chips and Blue Chips 2.

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.

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 »

Watch Action Bronson Rap From Inside A Porta Potty Again

Action Bronson has a habit of doing some weird shit on stage. This time, he wandered off during his set at Ottawa Bluesfest to hang out among the people in what looks like a mostly empty VIP section. While down there, he also made a pit stop in a Porta Potty (something he’s done beforeMore »

Watch Action Bronson Light A Joint Then Fight With Security Onstage In Portland Last Night

Last night’s Action Bronson show at Portland’s Roseland Theater ended in proverbial and literal flames.

Riff Raff – “I Shoulda Won A Grammy” (Feat. Action Bronson)

“I shoulda won a Grammy” is the sort of overblown, ridiculous, vaguely facetious statement that Riff Raff lives to make. But in a year when Macklemore won just about every rap Grammy, it’s a hard claim to dispute. Shortly after this year’s ceremony, Riff Raff gave the world the ridiculously catchy and absurdly referential new… More »
