AHH MIXTAPE REVIEW: Action Bronson “Blue Chips 2”

Creating a renaissance of lyrical talent out of Queens, Action Bronson has blessed us with his presence.  With previous work with beat smith Statik Selektah (Well Done) and legend Alchemist (Rare Chandeliers) he has garnered respect for emphasis on lyrics with beats to back it up. That being said, the sequel to the excellent Blue Chips (produced by Party Supplies) has touched down pairing the two together for round 2.

I have to stress the creativity all around that Action and team has.  He has song #1 “Action Silverado”, before he does the official “Intro”. Switching it up right from the beginning. Very cool.  Also happens to be one of my favorite tracks. “Why the f*ck would I have a bodyguard, when I look like the mutha f*ckin bodyguard”. Then over to “Practice” with the legendary quotable from AI. Party Supplies got the horns perfect over that bass line.  Bronsalino goes right in no time to waste “Got locked up in the afternoon, I’ll make it out by Night Court”. Songs like “Contemporary Man” where he raps over untouched 80s hits, and “It’s Me” where the song sounds like its out of a Disney Movie….are genius. Totally out there….and cool as hell.  Flow over anything, at any time man! 9.24.13 is AB free styling similar to what he did on the original Blue Chips with 9.24.11. Basically just goes off the wall lyrically, and its great. “Shooting guns with my daughter on the weekend, smoke the butter same color as the weekend, Stash under the sole of the sneaker”.

I can quote raps and beats from any of these songs.  It’s hard to hand pick a few.  And this is a MIXTAPE!!! Authentic, original hip-hop must be represented.  Much thought all around has been brought into this mix tape.  Razor sharp lyricals leave us with quotables and “WHAT? That’s CRAZY!” for days. A must have addition to your hip-hop library.

      • RapItUp

        Soo… Are you agreeing with me or saying he’s garbage? Your lack of punctuation makes your comment completely indecipherable :-/ I’m not talking shit either.. Sorta

      • Ralph Chef Leiva

        you dumb
        fuk read last sentence ps this aint high school fuk punctuation

      • RapItUp

        while you are making it EXTREMELY easy to be rude… I don’t want to, because I want to first understand what you’re saying.. ps, punctuation doesn’t stop at high school.. it continues well into the far depths of the adult world.. it helps us communicate. You see what happened up there? Dog you didn’t even put a period on your shit. How am I supposed to know what sentence you’re even talking about??

      • Ralph Chef Leiva

        who is being rude first of all I am grown man not going to waste my time with your idiotic comments grow the fuk up

      • RapItUp

        “you dumbfuk read last sentence ps this aint high school fuk punctuation”

        Sounds like the words of a grown man, and not one to make idiotic comments.. and also the person recommending others grow the ‘fuk’ up. Haha. You’re a loser son. Don’t even bother using another trip to the local library to respond back. Just give it up.

      • Ralph Chef Leiva

        look who’s the tough guy taking shit on-line that’s your moms should have give your bitch ass up last and final comment

      • RapItUp

        Yet another down syndrome comment from some little punk who can barely string a sentence together. You’re entirely too far out of your league kid. Now give Timmy his iPod Touch back, and you pay attention in class. Stop interrupting grown folk.

      • your vagina is showing

      • RapItUp

        YOU’RE supposed to be Ralph Chef’s cavalry? LOL next

  • Vinsanity

    Dude just looks like he smells like b.o…. Every time!! Hes alright, voice doesnt match. Just another wiged out white boy. Shave his beard and see how cool he thinks he is with out it.

  • Vinsanity

    He gets no pass in my book.. Hes everything hip hop stands against. Stick to cooking. Lil rich jewish kid with no struggle except his weight. Just cause he wants to rap doesnt mean he should be allowed. If we let him in then we open the flood gates and let any dork who listen to hip hop in who wants to rap now. Hes making a mockery of this.

    • Chico

      He didn’t grow up rich wtf….and hes not Jewish hes muslim his moms is jewish…Him and roc marci the hardest out b

    • You sound mad that action is better then your fav rapper?? of well

  • Freezamon

    Ghostface wannabe

    • better then a lil wayne wannabe.. or an outfit designer wanna be.. like a kanGay west.

  • Quintin Williams

    This is a good mixcd! Guys that wear those tight pants that choke the ankles cant relate to this CD. Based on his lyrics you can notice that he is a fan of 90’s hip hop. He gets points for originality and lyrics. I wasn’t a fan until I bought a mixcd so please don’t judge unless you’ve done that.

  • Why is it all the bad reviews mention race/religion. Comment in the material! I can respect an opinion on the material, but on someone’s race/religion/monetary status is either someone being uneducated or….just providing a rambling for
    Shock value. To me, the album is great. I agree w the review. I cannot understand how someone can say action can’t rap. Makes me wonder….has the definition of rap changed? Outside I few examples…action…kendrik…one or two others….who focuses on lyrics? Who is the jay the nas the talib the mos now except for these few lyrical dudes holding the torch.

  • my fav rapper at the moment!!! so different and unique. he also dont give a damn!! he not trying to spread illuminati rumors and design leather jogging pants that he claims will change the world. LOL
