Ab-Soul – “Stigmata (Feat. Action Bronson & Asaad)

Ab-Soul, the Black Hippy crew's resident bugged-out rap weirdo, has been working on a mysterious new album called These Days... for a while now, and he's been throwing consistently strong loose tracks like "Dub Sac" and "Tree Of Life" up online. His newest, which may or may not be on the album, enlist… More »

Watch The Premiere Episode Of Action Bronson’s Fuck, That’s Delicious

Fuck, That's Delicious, the show that follows rapper and gourmet chef Action Bronson and his adventurous eating habits, has finally premiered. In the first episode Bronson talks about his tour and traveling from the US to New Zealand, Australia, and eventually South Africa -- all while he enjoys some pasta at an Italian joint and… More »

Outkast, Chance The Rapper, Run The Jewels Playing 2014 Mad Decent Block Parties

Here's at least one more of Outkast's 40 festival appearances this year. The newly expanded traveling Mad Decent Block Party features different lineups on different dates, and the Denver stop will be headlined by none other than Big Boi and Andre 3000. Other performers throughout the tour include Chance The Rapper, Action Bronson, Ru… More »

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. As OregonLive reports, when the MC lit up a joint on stage, he was quickly rushed and chokeheld by a security guard, who Bronson pushed away once -- to calls of "Fuck security!" from the crowd -- then pushed… More »

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 »

Curren$y – “Godfather Four” (Feat. Action Bronson)

Curren$y and Action Bronson are both masterful free-associators with permanently lidded eyes and big internet fanbases, so it makes sense that they'd link up with each other. Bronson appears on "Godfather Four," a string-drenched track from a forthcoming Curren$y full-length called The Drive In, and Bronson's choppy delivery makes a nice contrast to Curren$y's honeyed… More »

Watch Chance The Rapper Perform With Jeremih & Action Bronson In Chicago

After the triumphant year he had in 2013, Chance the Rapper is now a conquering hero in his Chicago hometown. And over the past few nights, he's had a few opportunities to bask in that glory. A few nights ago, during a show for college students at Chicago's Lincoln Hall, Chance introduced the Chicago R&B… 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 »

Stereogum’s 50 Favorite Songs Of 2013

Determining the year's best albums is, admittedly, a subjective pursuit. But even more than an albums roundup, a list of songs is an intensely personal way to sum up a year in music. It is a process of appreciating the trees in a forest so sprawling it can never be mapped out entirely, celebrating… More »

Roc Marciano – “456” (Feat. Action Bronson)

Yesterday, the great Long Island rapper/producer Roc Marciano quietly released his new album Marci Beaucoup. Marci won Album Of The Week last year for his Reloaded and also dropped the very good mixtape The Pimpire Strikes Back last month, and there's a very good chance he would've snagged Album Of The Week agai… 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. 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… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

It has been a bittersweet week over here at Stereogum HQ as we bid farewell to our good friend and super-talented colleague Claire Lobenfeld. Fortunately, we got a deep pile of new songs to distract us from our bumming. This week's 5 Best span the spectrum, from noise to hip-hop to electronic to drone-R&B --… 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… 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… More »

The Alchemist x Action Bronson – “Diagnosis”

The clothing designer Dr. Romanelli, who repurposes vintage items into new things, has a new collection based on the Coca-Cola logo, and to promote it, he's tapped the great bleary-eyed rap producer the Alchemist to make "Diagnosis," an eight-minute rap innervision made partly from stitched-together Coke-commerical audio. Action Bronson shows up to strut through… More »

Watch BET Hip-Hop Awards 2013 Highlights: Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, Meek Mill

Every year, during the BET Hip-Hop Awards, the show airs little black-and-white vignettes of people rapping in warehouses -- sometimes in crews, sometimes in random-as-fuck thrown-together groupings. In certain circles, these videos, the fabled BET Cyphers, are all anyone talks about the day after the show; the Ace Hood/Juelz Santana/Fabolous/Jadakiss one from 2008 is still… More »
