Action Bronson’s major-label debut, 2015’s Mr.Wonderful, didn’t make him a rap superstar, but he became fairly famousanyway thanks to his foul-mouthed Viceland food travelogue F*ck That’sDelicious. Without the need for a hit record to keep his pockets satiated,Bronson can go back to the freewheeling model of the Blue Chips mixtapesthat helped his initial rise: off-kilter punchlines, giddy dirtbaggery andbeats chopped from kitschy, quirky samples. Here, producers like Party Supplies(who did the last two Blue Chips) and Harry Fraud make funky work out ofAustrian jazz-rock, Nigerian highlife, Thai funk and Italian lounge-grooverecords. Most hilarious is an Alchemist production made to sound like Bronsonis rapping to the hold music from a taxi service. Working with a major labelthat clears samples is probably why Bronson and crew have opted out of some ofthe more audacious selections (Blue Chips2 had him spitting overElton John, Peter Gabriel and “Tequila”), but a banquet of loop-basedproduction still hits those old-school notes even without the postmoderntwist. For his part, Bronson is still acrobatic with a bar (“Now I’mnestled in the Tesla eatin pretzels”) and still dabbles in the occasional sportsreference (“Two pumps from the inhaler got me feeling like Lawrence Taylor”).
