Action Bronson – SAAAB Stories
Queens, NY native Action Bronson is back on the grustle with a fresh new retail release named “SAAAB Stories”, which is entirely produced by Harry Fraud. Both are making extraordinary leaps and bounds over the past few years becoming a big part of this generation’s New York Hip Hop renaissance. After a steady drop of acclaimed Bronson free projects, this iTunes exclusive is a EP release containing seven tracks.
Here are SOHH.com’s 5 Reasons to download “SAAAB Stories”.
1. Time to Feast
Fresh off his cover on the XXL Magazine as one of the 2013 Freshmen, Action Bronson is experiencing a wave of prosperity right now. Action was a recent guest at DJ Whoo Kid’s Shade 45 show Whoolywood Shuffle. When speaking about the SAAAB Stories EP he said, “It’s a taster, a little seven joints, me and Fraud. Me and Harry Fraud been working for a long time, and to put out this little of music is a little upsetting but it is what it is.” Bronson also stressed the need to keep new material coming. “I’m a weirdo, I need to put something out. I’m sick of f*ckin’ performing the same songs over and over.” Fans that were fiending for some new Action are in store for a nice appetizer.
2. Support The Grind
Action Bronson has given away impressive work on the mixtape circuit that is of great quality. His drops are well mixed with pristine production and premium visuals. Although he has been recently inked to Atlantic Records and is the the newest member of Top Dawg Entertainment home to Kendrick Lamar, Action put a lot of indie work in. Bronson has dropped a string of successful joints and consistently makes his presence felt via guest features and shows. Previous drops such as the Alchemist produced “Rare Chandeliers” and “Blue Chips” produced by Party Supplies were available for free on popular mixtape sites Datpiff.com and LiveMixtapes.com True fans shouldn’t have a problem chipping in less than ten dollars for a new tape like this. “Saaab Stories” is available via iTunes for only $5.99.
3. The Fraud Factor
Action Bronson linking up with super producer Harry Fraud is a big deal. Fraud has been responsible for some big hits in the past few years and his production talent has been in high demand. A native New Yorker, Harry has been hard at working building an impressive discography with artists like French Montana, Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa. Harry is the man behind the boards for this entire EP with wonderful results. When Fraud talked to iStandardProducers.com in February 2012 about his particular style he stated, “My sound I would say is very eclectic. I try to never let anything define me as a producer. I really really push hard to not have one sound, or one way that I program a sample, or one way I program drums. You may hear a continuity in the types of sounds I choose or the way I put the records together, but I definitely don’t want to have a ‘sound’.”
4. Bars For Days
Even on a single that is radio ready, Bronson still goes bonkers with the bars. On the lead hit-off joint for “SAAAB Stories” titled “Strictly 4 My Jeeps”, Bronson spits that fire.
“Long knife by the spinal, built like a rhino/
Push the 635 to the finals/
Pearl white like what you sniffin’ in your sinus/
The finest vaginas demolished by my dick/
One year from Queens to the top/
Cream of the crop, serve a fiend out my sock/
Five minutes till they lean like the drop/
Now they spinning through the furnace like the scene from The Rock”
As blazing as that cut is, the Queens remix featuring LL Cool J and Lloyd Banks is equally fuego!
Even though this is a short project the features are well placed. Wiz Khalifa drops a stellar verse and creates an ill collab with Bronson on the high energy “The Rockers”. Bam Bam name drops Marty Jannetty who along with Shawn Micheals formed the former WWF Wrestling tag-team The Rockers. Sick joint for real! Bronson also links up with some pioneering 90′s rap legends Raekwon and Prodigy of Mobb Deep on the laid back gutter “Seven Series Trip”. The three emcees collectively smash the Harry Fraud beat into smithereens.
