Action Bronson

rapper action bronson

Years Active: 2009-present
Label: Vice Records
Best Known Song: “Brunch”

“The underground savior Action Bronson looks like he could have eaten Ghostface Killah for brunch (maybe that’s why he sounds a bit like him). But no matter, because the former Flushing, Queens chef has created his own huge image with raps that mince meat, but definitely do not mince words. His collaborations with RiFF RaFF, Statik Selektah and Party Supplies have lit much on fire: the block, the ‘Net, the blunt…though surprisingly not his beard.” ~ Complex Media on Action Bronson

Biography

Arian Asllani (born December 2, 1983), better known by the stage name Action Bronson, is an American rapper and former chef. In August 2012, he signed toWarner Bros. Records, but was later moved to Atlantic Records’ imprint, Vice Records.

Bronson was born in Flushing, Queens, New York, the son of an Albanian immigrant father and a Jewish New Yorker mother. Before embarking on a career as a rapper, which was originally just a hobby, Bronson was a respected fire-flame gourmet chef in New York City. He hosted his own online cooking show titled Action in the Kitchen. After breaking his leg in the kitchen, Bronson concentrated solely on his music career.

Bronson has released several mixtapes, such as Rare Chandeliers (2012), with American hip hop producer The Alchemist and Blue Chips 2 (2013), with longtime producer Party Supplies, before releasing his major label debut, an extended play (EP) titled Saaab Stories, with frequent collaborator Harry Fraud, in 2013. He released his major label debut album, Mr. Wonderful, on March 23, 2015.
