He may sound like Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah, but when rapper Action Bronson calls upon his past life as a chef and spits heavy culinary knowledge, you certainly wouldn’t confuse the two. Born and raised in Flushing, Queens, Bronson wasn’t even ten when an illicit copy of the Wu-Tang Clan album 36 Chambers landed in the tape deck at a friend’s sleepover party. His life was changed forever, and soon he discovered another idol, Kool G Rap. Bronson later studied at the Art Institute of New York City’s culinary program and went on to join the restaurant business as a chef, but in 2009 he exited the kitchen and entered the studio. In 2011 he would release his debut album, Dr. Lecter. That same year he appeared beside Ghostface as a guest artist on the Wu-Tang collection Legendary Weapons. In 2012, the Fools Gold label released Blue Chips, a collaborative album with Brooklyn-based producer Party Supplies, while the Alchemist-helmed mixtape Rare Chandeliers followed later in the year. His 2013 EP Saaab Stories was produced by Harry Fraud and launched his major-label deal with Warner Bros. via the Vice imprint.
