‘Bird On A Wire’ sees everybody’s favourite fat, white, ginger Ghostface impersonator Action Bronson team up with everybody’s favourite tall, white, blue-contact lens and other ridiculous-shit wearing Gucci Mane impersonator Riff Raff. Both rappers contribute memorable enough verses and their appearances in the video for the track are even more memorable, with Bronson trying to upstage Riff Raff’s – ahem – “striking” and “original” look by carrying not one but two gigantic spliffs in his big beardy mouth as he waddles down the street.

But what really makes this track worth listening to is the unseen element – up-and-coming young producer Harry Fraud, who has done stuff with Bronson before (and has worked loads with French Montana, producing his recent hit single ‘Shot Caller’), and who smacks it here with a beat which combines sped up soulful sax licks and an epic synth-bassline straight out of an 80’s Miami crime movie with stuttering snares and hats straight out of the trap, to dreamy and delicious effect.
