Action Bronson is your NSFW Jewish NYC rapper

Action Bronson. If you haven’t heard of this man by now, I suggest you do. His lyrics are crude, vile and filthy. His samples are elegant. His recent mixtape Blue Chips is a perfect example of these two clashing components. Bronson hails from Queens, NYC, and has regularly been compared to Ghostface Killah of Wu Tang fame.

His personality is itself also fascinating. Bronson is an enigma. He’s a man who you would never describe as a feminist (also he’s unapologetically not politically correct about gays). His songs border on the obsessive when it comes to hookers. But he does enjoy cooking. He’s built like a brick shit house, and has a enormous bushy red beard (blame the Albanian in him). Like many Jews, Bronson’s relationship with Judaism is full of pop culture references, stereotypes, and a basic knowledge of Jewish customs.

Take for instance the beginning lyrics to his song of Blue Chips entitled ‘Thug Love Story 2012′.

She had the sweetest scent I ever smelt, that woman have/
Skin would glisten like reflections off the bluest jag/
She had a Jewish dad and a Jamaican maid/
Started hanging with strippers and dropping the zippers

It gets much vulgar after this. Call me a conspiracy theorists, but it also sounds like the samples repeats the words ‘shabbat shabbat’. (I know it doesn’t but let’s pretend because pretending is fun and makes writing posts about music easier.)

Another track off of Blue Chips is titled ‘Steve Wynn’, after the Jewish-American businessman who built the Las Vegas strip.

Green Timbs. In Vegas I’m like Steve Wynn/
At the same time, fellatio from three twins/
Those are triplets. I’ve been wilding since the Rabbi snipped it/
Then they laughed, then they brisket, fuck/
On my behalf, he had a meeting at the Neptune

And later he raps,

Flex the three-quarter cream V’s/
We’re summer seam G’s. Steamed red snapper: Vietnamese/
Catch a case, get a Jewish lawyer, beat it with cheese/
Fuck the beef cause it don’t go together. Read it and weep

And in 2011 he wrote a song about 1980s WWF Jewish wrestler Barry Horowitz.

Action Bronson’s rhymes are infectious. Can’t wait to see what he comes out with next.
