Rare Chandeliers

Like the slabs of steak this part-time chef hands out at his shows, Action Bronson's musical formula is easy to love: nunchakus-speed boasts about weed, fellatio, food and B-film schemes ("Flick chives in the soup/Stick knives where you poop"), Nineties-baby shout-outs (Danny Tanner, "Bitches blowin' on my dick like a cartridge") and narrative scenes dense enough to make Ghostface salivate. He doesn't tweak it on this ­mixtape except to bring in Alchemist, Eminem's DJ, as producer for extra-claustrophobic menace (see the skull-crushing guitars on "The Symbol"). It's shtick, sure, but one only a dour vegan would gripe about.
