Sure, we all know Action Bronson for his rapid-fire flow, food references, and riotous sense of humor, but one thing true fans of the Queens rapper knows — he’s all about comfort. Bronson is known for wearing the most comfortable of running sneakers — from Asics to New Balances — as well as loose-fitting garbs, and now the chef-turned-rapper is collaborating with Stance to bring their unmatched comfort to the feet of the masses.
The socks feature artwork by Bronson’s in-house illustrator, Freako Rico, including the cartoony single art for “Terry” and “Actin Crazy” as well as the cover art for Bronson’s well-received debut album, Mr. Wonderful.

Check out the hilarious parody of comedian Mike Epps reenacting Ghostface Killah‘s Action Bronson diss. Epps is known for his impersonations of the best of them so it comes to no surprise his Ghost impression is entertaining to say the least. Watch one of the funniest videos of the week above…
Action Bronson has often been mercilessly compared to the Wu-Tang’s Ghostface Killah, but there seemed to be no problem between the two rap stars until now. In the video above, Ghostface goes in on Bronson for the comments that he made on ESPN’s SportsNation. After being told by Max Kellerman that he bought his album just because he thought it was Ghostface, Bronson responded with “He’s not rapping like this no more.”
Ghostface clearly had a problem with these comments. “Who gives you the right to even mention my name?,” was just one of the many jabs that the Queens rapper takes at Bronson. It didn’t take long for Bronson to about-face on his comments on Sportsnation concerning Ghostface, taking to Twitter to express his feelings on the issue.
When ur wrong ur wrong and I was wrong. I apologized for the comments. I’ll always be a stand up human. Much love.
Who knows what made Action Bronson make a statement that sounded anything remotely like he was better than Wu swordsman Ghostface Killah, but on his appearance on ESPN‘s Sports Nation, the most visible member of the Queens based Outdoorsmen crew said something really slick with Ghost’s name attached to it. See the video above and judge for yourself.
Statik Selektah is a producer who has no qualms with working with old heads versus the new bloods. When you see his work he’s just as likely to put something out with Joey Bada$$ and Action Bronson as he is to put something out with Eminem or Onyx. This record puts him in the middle of working with the veterans including Sean Price, Styles P, and Bun B. It’s an amazing amalgamation of rappers here that shows Statik’s style, which is squarely rooted in NYC styles, but not afraid of making moves outside of that. What do you think about this new record, and are you excited for the new album, Lucky 7?
Pittsburgh’s Goldsmith recruits Bam Bam for a new cut entitled “Onesy & Slippers” which features Drum Gang on the production credits. Take a listen as Bronsolini and the 412 native rep for their native cities.
The Wu-Tang emcee says sometimes he thinks Action Bronson Rhymes are his as well
“I thought he was me one day. I’m like when the f— did I do that verse but it was him?”
says the Wu-Tang rhyme-star in a recent VladTV interview. Overall, Ghostface, who has worked with Bronson in the past, is not turning over in his chamber about Bronson’s alleged vocal matching. In fact, Ghostface takes a semi-diplomatic approach to the speculation that dominates hip hop conversations. Is Action Bronson vocal-matching/jacking Ghostface with the intention of selling records and gaining popularity through a cultural misappropriation practice that has been going on forever? An unforgiving cultural appropriation committee with historical research in tact would probably find him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, but Ghostface ponders the question of intent.
Bronson, who is managed by Eminem’s manager Paul Rosenberg, says that people make the comparisons all the time but the Queens bred M.C who is Albanian and Jewish says he really does just happened to sound like the Staten Island MC with an unforgettable tone and delivery.
This is all fine and dandy, but if Action Bronson starts sweeping up awards for a Ghostface-styled sound in the same manner as Iggy has for vocal matching Eve and Da Brat (as observed by Miss Jill Scott) then I’m sure a plethora of the Wu Tang’s killer bees (fans) will start swarming social media with distress.
Action Bronson’s at it again Apparently Action Bronson has a thing for tossing fans off stage during his shows. Last night, Bronson was doing a record release show at Terminal 5 in NYC when a fan found his way on stage. From the first watch it’s almost as if Bronson effortlessly plucks the guy off the stage. But after a second, third and possible fourth watch of the hilarious clip, it almost seems as if the fan helps Bronson give him the DJ Jazzy Jeff treatment. Watch the click above and if you’re ever at a Action Bronson show anytime soon…make your way on stage for the Bronson-Treatment, he aims to please.
