Album: Blue Chips 7000
Release Date: TBA
In the more than two years since Action Bronson released his major-label debut, Mr. Wonderful, the once prolific Queens rapper has released fairly little music outside of a handful of guest verses. Perhaps that's because the former chef has been busy becoming a TV star, traveling the world and sampling local cuisine on two seasons of the Viceland series Fuck, That's Delicious. But Bronson is planning to end his hiatus from music soon with a return to his most beloved series of mixtapes. 2012's Blue Chips and 2013's Blue Chips 2 teamed Bronson with Brooklyn production duo Party Supplies to juxtapose his densely referential rhymes with tons of samples. In March, the MC tweeted that he was putting the finishing touches on Blue Chips 7000. Earlier this month he dropped first taste, "Let Me Breathe," which samples the Fat Boys' 1985 classic, "The Fat Boys Are Back."
