Action Bronson

After a string of releases that topped year-end lists in 2011 and 2012, Queens rapper Action Bronson graduated to the majors and signed a deal with Warner Bros. through hipster media giant VICE. If his first project since then, the grimy, head-nodding Rare Chandeliers mixtape produced by the Alchemist, is any indication, the Internet’s favorite foodie MC is on track for a five-star major-label debut in 2013.
