Action Bronson Talks 'Mr. Wonderful', Influences, White Rappers + More On 'The Breakfast Club'
Action Bronson made a stop at the Power 105.1 studios to rap with The Breakfast Club crew for a bit, delving into his highly anticipated debut Mr. Wonderful LP, his copious influences, amongst other things. After taking Charlamagne's (and every naysayer's) Ghostface Killah comparison in stride, Bronson dispelled Angela Yee's assumption of the source material for his epic "Easy Rider" video (I mean, come on) and touched on his self-assumed responsibility of carrying the torch for Queens' legacy of providing the world with masters of the microphone. He even took a moment to address the Charlamagne's claim that there's a growing fear of white rappers in hip-hop. In short, there isn't. Just a growing awareness of buffoonery in the ever greying musical landscape, which was brought to light in Azealia Banks' heated, now infamous Ebro In The Morning interview and the backlash that played out in the social media realm. The appearance comes on the heels of two stud singles from Mr. Wonderful in "Easy Rider" and the Noah 40 Shebib-produced "Actin Crazy," both of which are available to purchase on iTunes today.
