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 »

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.

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 »

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 »

Meyhem Lauren – “Drug Lords” (Feat. Action Bronson & AG Da Coroner) Video

During last year's SXSW, the Queens rapper Meyhem Lauren rounded up an absolutely murderous collective of internet-underground rap overlords and made an entire mixtape, the very good Respect The Fly Shit. The track "Drug Lords" has a Harry Fraud beat and guest verses from Lauren buddies Action Bronson and AG Da Coroner, and now… More »

Watch Action Bronson In A Tampon Commercial From 2010

Before starting a career rapping frequently about women's genitalia, Queens rapper Action Bronson appeared in a TV commercial expressing general befuddlement about women's genitalia. In this 2010 Kotex commercial, Bronson gets exactly one word of dialogue, gets to show off a classic NY screwface, and generally comes off better than most of the stammering her… More »

Watch Action Bronson Play An Old Folks Home

Well, isn't this delightful: Action Bronson performing "Strictly 4 My Jeeps" from his recent Harry Fraud-produced EP Saaab Stories at St. Hilda's retirement center in the UK. We already knew that Bronson had a propensity for funny, but this takes it to another level. As sweet as the whole thing is, though,… More »

Action Bronson – “Heel Toe” (Prod. by Harry Fraud) (Stereogum Premiere)

Action Bronson and Harry Fraud just released their collaborative EP SAAAB Stories. But well before "Strictly 4 My Jeeps" was a twinkling in our Riff Raff-loving eyes, word about this cut "Heel Toe" was around. Some time last year, the two exchanged tweets about the track, Fraud saying, "Sheesh that shit so… More »

Watch Action Bronson Do Improv Comedy

Hot 97 radio personality Cipha Sounds is not only one-third of the morning crew at NYC's premiere rap station, but he is also a comedy enthusiast. Listeners are probably familiar with his heavily advertised April Fool's Day standup show (which I am pretty sure has been hosted by Tracy Morgan since inception) but now Ciph… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

But in its impeccable planning and its flawless execution, it captured imaginations over the weekend and dominated the conversation come Monday. It felt like an actual honest-to-god event, and how many of those do… More »
