Action Bronson takes the wheel on a new banger, with producer Harry Fraud riding shotgun.
Lowell Fulson’s ‘Tramp’ is familiar sample fodder, memorably used on Redman’s 1993 joint ‘Time 4 Sum Aksion’. Still, Fraud and Bronson are a potent combination – stand back and marvel at 2012’s brilliant ‘Bird On A Wire’ – and the team-up pays dividends once again. Fraud’s beat is a crawling bit of vintage boom-bap, intermittently interrupted with tinny trap interludes. Bronson, meanwhile, sounds more like Ghostface than ever – his sort-of-sung hook is pure Tony Starks – but his food’n’girls schtick is dextrous and fun. Bronson’s Party Supplies team-up Blue Chips got a lot of love, but a Fraud/Bronson LP is definitely the record the Queens rapper needs to make.
