[Watch] Action Bronson Performs "Strictly 4 My Jeeps" at a Retirement Home

"I don't care about Coachella, or nowhere in New York, or the Garden. All about St. Hilda's." These are the words of Action Bronson before he entered St. Hilda's retirement home in London, where he performed his single "Strictly 4 My Jeeps" live in front of a group of bewildered seniors. While they weren't particularly fans of the music—"You can't understand what they're saying. It's far too quick."—the audience enjoyed Bronson's quirky antics and good-natured humor. In the end, he got an average score of 5.2. Not bad for his first showing at St. Hilda's.

[Download] Action Bronson - 'Rare Chandeliers'

Action Bronson teamed up with Party Supplies earlier this year to give us the amazing mixtape Blue Chips, one of the better hip-hop releases of the year. Well, the Queens rapper is back, and this time he has teamed up with hip-hop producer extraordinaire The Alchemist for his latest release Rare Chandeliers. The mixtape was recorded over the last year and a half, and the result is fourteen tracks of unadulterated, funk-infused goodness.

Throughout the noire, jazz-laden beats are guest spots from ScHoolboy Q, Styles P, Roc Marciano, and more, meaning you should at least stream the mixtape below to understand how good it is. After you do that, make sure to download the album. It is free after all.

[Watch] Action Bronson - "The Symbol" (Official Video)

Action Bronson is known for his off-kilter sense of humor, and it shows in his music as well as his videos. The visuals for "The Symbol" pay homage to the action heroes of the '70s, the Steve McQueen's and the Clint Eastwood's of yore. Donning a golden blonde wig, Bronson delivers badass one-liners and swings his fists without mercy. He is the new generation of the badass motherfuckin' action hero.

Action Bronson and The Alchemist's collab mixtape Rare Chandeliers, which includes "The Symbol", is out later this month.

[Listen] Action Bronson - "It's Me" (Prod. by Party Supplies)

If you hear the names Action Bronson and Party Supplies, you'll likely remember their collaborative mixtape Blue Chips, which was released last March. Simply put, the mixtape was fucking fantastic, and the rapper/producer combination have once again teamed up for a track titled "It's Me". The cut feels like it could comfortably join the ranks of Blue Chips, a familiarity that feels right at home. Stream the track below.

According to MTV Hive, "Party Supplies confirmed that the song will be on Blue Chips 2. Talking about the mood of the project, he added, ‘The album has that Blue Chips one vibe, but it’s a lot crazier with the musical style.’ Blue Chips 2 has yet to receive a release date, but Party Supplies did add that he and Bronson have been embracing a creative recording process that involves “smoking a lot of what looks like Nickelodeon slime."
