Qualified Queens chef-turned-rapper, Action Bronson, has built a loyal following since he decided to leave the kitchen for a recording studio only 18 short months ago. However, the man Rolling Stone recently called the “Artist to Watch” didn’t stray too far from the kitchen, as he is well known for rapping about his culinary delights.
Action’s experiences lend a unique flavor to his rhymes, where you’ll find witty mentions of duck prosciutto, Tunisian olives, smoked brisket and other delicacies along with vivid imagery of a modern-day Viking pillaging his way across New York.
He recently linked up with producer Statik Selektah, and a couple tracks turned into a whole project. What do you get when you combine Statik with Action? The duo call it Well Done.
The album, set to drop on DCide Records, features guest appearances from Nina Sky and Lil Fame (M.O.P.), and is produced by Statik.
Nina Sky appears on the project’s lead-single, “Cocoa Butter.” A video was recently shot in Bronson and Nina Sky’s home base of Queens.
In support of the record, the duo will be touring extensively from the US to Canada to Europe.
Well Done drops November 22.
