Action Bronson drops a brand new album and this one sounds like a soundtrack for going through a safari. Filled with animal noises and the like, it definitely sounds like he was going for some sort of concept album here. I gotta be honest, the weaker part of this album was the production side. Ever since the original Blue Chips series mixtapes, I wanted to hear that sound again. We need Bronson back on those beats. Something hard for the streets. Please give us something like that. These weirder sounding albums just aren’t cutting it as well. On the mic, Bronson is dope. His rhymes are definitely still sharp and he sounds great while rhyming. His confidence and descriptions are always great. You also get some features from Conway, Meyhem Lauren, Roc Marciano, and more. All in all, this wasn’t a terrible album, but it definitely needed some work on the production side of things.
Action Bronson comes back with a new project and this one is a little bit weirder than most of his regular stuff. It’s almost pretty apparent that he was trying to go for the weird factor with this one. His rhymes are actually pretty decent throughout the project. It is classic Bronson spitting his witty and visual lines that he is known for. The beats and concepts may be a little out there for most people though. It’s almost like he is trying to convey something that can only be understood by dolphins. I wished that he would have had more bangers on this joint, kind of like back when he was doing the Blue Chips mixtapes. The ones that were salvageable to me were “Golden Eye” and “Mongolia” featuring Hologram and Meyhem Lauren. Both of those have some pretty slamming beats and they rhymes are pretty damn good over top of those beats. All in all, this was not necessarily a whack album at all, it was just pretty weird, and not the best that we have seen from Action Bronson.
Action Bronson teams up with the legendary producer The Alchemist to provide us with a new EP. When it comes to Action Bronson, I always find myself wanting more and more and that is what happened with this project. It is just not long enough and you want to hear more of what Action Bronson can do. He is fantastically and comically sharp throughout the project. His rhymes are always sprinkled with gourmet food, old car, and drug references. He always knows exactly what he is doing and rarely disappoints an audience. Alchemist does a decent job on the beats. It did seem like there was an effort to tailor his beats just to Action Bronson’s style. “Just The Way It Is” is the best song on here with it’s perfect neck snapping bop and Bronson’s expert level flow. All in all, this was a dope project. I just wish it was longer. It also makes me curious how another Action Bronson and Party Supplies mixtape would sound.
Action Bronson drops off a record that was a little disappointing. His bars are okay on here. I think he is at least shooting for par on that level, but I would have liked to have seen him go a little harder on the mic. He has those colorful and descriptive wild scenes that he seems to rhyme about, but it just didn’t really push the envelope for me. The lyrics were good, just not great. The beats on here were really a lower point overall. A lot of the beats feature guitars which is overkill after a certain point. There are way too many tracks that feature that. What it needed was some more tracks like the first 2 Blue Chips mixtapes. It would be nice to see Action Bronson team back up with Party Supplies to make another incredible record. Sure, it might sound like they are trying to reinvent the wheel, but when you strike gold, you keep digging for it. The highlight is “Swerve On Em” which features ASAP Rocky. This one is definitely the best beat on the project. So overall, this record doesn’t really have that much boom-bap feel to it like previous Bronson records. It’s at least listenable though.
Bam Bam or Action Bronson is back with his long-awaited mixtape in his Blue Chips series. He skips right from 2 to 7000, but we ain’t mad at that. Overall this is a decent project. Lyrically Bronson is on point. He spits his unique and signature bars that we have all been craving. The production on here was ok. It probably could have been a bit better. I was waiting to hear just some slamming boom-bap beat but never really got that. That is not to say that the production is lacking though, because there are good tracks on here. I just think it was left a little flatter than some of the beats on previous Blue Chip mixtapes. I don’t think that there is really a standout track on here because all of the tracks are pretty consistent, which is a good thing. At the end of the day, the best part about it is that we get to hear Action Bronson doing his thing again. Hopefully we don’t have to wait as long next time.
