Cross your straight shooter best friend, a little wild and surreptitious in nature, although nurturing a keen sense of intuition, and someone who is usually spot on, with the outward appearance of a clunky, beardy beast of a man with a sense of humor and imagination. The result? You get out-of-the-box rapper/chef Action Bronson.
“I am a f**king fat white boy. I have to be able to rap. I don’t have the look. I don’t have the typical slim dude, fancy boy look. That’s not me. I have to be able to rap, there’s no other choice or I get eaten alive,” the outspoken artist said to online music source xxlmag.com.
Truthfully, when you glance over Action Bronson, you ask yourself which genre he fits into. The New Yorker from Flushing Queens is a bit of a misfit in the ultimate sense of the word. He’s unapologetic and stubborn with a sense of loyalty and fresh ideas. Born to an Albanian father and Jewish mother, he inspires a new avenue for rappers.
