Qualified chef-turned-rapper from Queens, New York, newcomer Action Bronson has built up a loyal following since he decided to leave the kitchen for a recording studio only 18 short months ago. However, the man Rolling Stone Magazine 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 flavour 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.
Action recently linked up with Producer Statik Selektah, and a couple tracks turned into a whole project. What do you get when you combine one of the best Producers in the game and one of the best upcoming lyricists? Action Bronson & Statik Selektah call it Well Done.
This is an album hip-hop fans around the world have been yearning for. In the vein of classic producer & emcee albums; Bronson & Statik deliver one that will stand the test of time.
Well Done will be released on November 22nd courtesy of DCide Records and is now available for Pre-Order on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/preorder/well-done/id473288366.
The project’s lead-single, “Cocoa Butter,” features Nina Sky and a video was recently shot in Bronson & Nina Sky’s home base of Queens.
Action & Statik will be touring extensively in support of the record, from the US to Canada to Europe
