Here’s the skinny on rotund rapper Action Bronson: he’s a culinary enthusiast by day and an MC by night, recording fastidiously well-worded tracks with the precision of Ghostface or Kool Keith. Every studio rat needs their leisure pursuits—Lil Wayne has his skateboarding; MF Doom has his masks—but Bronson’s are uniquely childlike. This is a man who rhymes about butterscotch (no, that’s not a euphemism) and pizza toppings. On record, Bronson favors weird, wonky production that leaves just enough breathing room for his tales of dining misadventure, which outline the following statement of purpose: to shut shit down at the food court, and tell every caterer they're the one for him.
