For those of you who keep your ear to the ever evolving state of hip hop, the name Action Bronson is either new to you or very familiar. In conjunction with fellow Queens resident Party Supplies, as well as help from Fool’s Gold Records, Complex Magazine and Reebok, the duo have just released their “Blue Chips” mixtape – and may we say, it’s very well done. All songs are original, including guest appearances by Das Racist, Meyhem Lauren and Roc Marciano.
The beauty of this mixtape is that there was no pressure to produce a hit or rack up sales numbers. Party Supplies just let Bronson do what he does best; breathe into a microphone. The entire Blue Chips mixtape can be dowloaded for free here.
Most of “Blue Chips” was made in Party Supplies’ home studio in Brooklyn over YouTube sample digging, grub from local chicken joint Pies ‘n’ Thighs, and obligatory smoke sessions.
