Hailing from Flushing, Queens; Action Bronson is one of the most visually and lyrically unique hip-hop artists currently making music. Born to an Albanian immigrant father and Jewish New Yorker mother, Bronson merges his heritage with New York culture in his music. Sounding like Ghostface Killah's long lost white brother, Action Bronson has a voice that is confident powering out 16 bars ('Strictly 4 My Jeeps') or chilling out on lazy beats ('Long Pinky'). His lyrics are funny and massively over the top referencing food, sports, women and New York landmarks.

His social media presence further illuminates the legitimacy of his cartoon character personality. As a former gourmet chef, Bronson has had a cooking show - Fuck, That's Delicious - produced by Vice which sees him travel the world seeking out the best dishes. He also curates a food and marijuana heavy Instagram which is complemented by a hilarious Twitter feed which fires out self-praise, anecdotes and cooking advice in equal measure. One recent tweet simply stated: "I HATE U IF U PUT ALUMINUM FOIL OVER THE GRILL TO COOK. U SUCK."

Action Bronson's live shows are raucous events with stage dives a common occurrence - no mean feat for a 300 lb plus man. During a show in Manchester last year, Action Bronson lost his phone and sent out the message that if found, he would reward the person who brought it on stage. Said phone was found and the lucky guy who found it was rewarded with $2000 cash on stage.

Bronson has released a slew of mixtapes and EPs; including the critically acclaimed Rare Chandeliers and the controversial major label EP Saaab Stories. His latest release was the mixtape Blue Chips 2 with producer Party Supplies which showcases all of Bronson's lyrical talent backed by madcap musical tracks. A full length major label debut is slated for release late this year and is sure to be catapult Action Bronson to mainstream success.

With every original track, guest verse or online cooking show episode, Action Bronson continues to command more and more attention. Defiantly unique and honest in his background and ambitions, Bronson's lyrical skill and personality mean that his ever-growing fanbase is sure to keep expanding throughout 2014 and beyond.
