CHECK OUT THE LATEST
The possibility of punters being body slammed at next year’s Rapture 2014 has just increased exponentially, with the Eminem-curated-and-headlined touring festival today confirming the involvement of US rapper Action Bronson.
Given that his name appeared on some premature announcements this shouldn’t come as much of a shock, but here it is confirmed nonetheless. Bronson made his debut appearance in Australia for the first time just this year as part of the Sugar Mountain festival in January, as well as his own run of headlining sideshows with Peanut Butter Wolf and Jonti.
In 2009, Bronson answered the call to undo his apron and walk away from a successful career as a chef and several releases and international tours later, it’s looking like it was the right call. The larger-than-life character has justified his over-the-top behaviour with the release of his latest EP Saab Stories which charted in the top 10 for North America upon its release, solidifying what many of us already suspected – Action Bronson is one of the meanest MCs out.
There was that time he performed in a nursing home, though, so it’s not like he’s a bad dude. You can’t see Eminem joining him in a kitchen, can you? Maybe for breakfast.
