Since making his name in the New York City underground rap scene for the past few years, Flushing Queens native Action Bronson makes his first appearance on The Breakfast Club. The portly rappers spoke about his first love of cooking, as he spent many years as a chef, but soon broke his leg in the kitchen, which led to him taking a career in rap seriously. Without a doubt, the quartet spoke about the comparisons he receives to Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah, with Bronson stating that they may have similar vocal inflections but that is where the similarities end.
With Action being managed by Paul Rosenberg, Eminem’s longtime manager, he addressed the white rapper comparisons and what impact that has had on his career. He clarifies that his race had never been an issue as a rapper until recently when he began to achieve a bit more success, even downplaying the recent spat he had with rapper Azealia Banks over culture appropriation in Hip-Hop. He goes as far as to say he is dislikes when people say he has only achieved success due to race because he has worked hard to arrive at this point. Action drops a gem during the interview speaking on how his recent single ‘Acting Crazy’, which is produced by 40, of Drake’s OVO, was actually a leftover from Drake’s forthcoming album, and fellow Queens native 50 Cent was lobbying for the track as well. Check out the entire above.
