Action Bronson Drops Cover Art For New Album, ‘Mr. Wonderful’
Action Bronson's Mr. Wonderful, slated for Mar. 24, finally has cover art to accompany its tracklist. The sparse cartoon has a shirtless Bronson laid up, spread-eagle, atop a golden throne, which is probably an example of art imitating life. Thus far, the cuts that have been heard from the LP are the 40-produced "Actin' Crazy" and last year's psychedelic "Easy Rider." The artwork was created by Richard Montgomery. "Bronson had me watching classic Jean Claude Van Damme movies back to back to get my mind right to do this cover," said Montgomery.
New York's second most famous rapping chef has been testing his acting chops of late, guest starring (with ?uestlove) on Lucas Bros. Construction Co. and anchoring his own culinary series, the acclaimed Fuck, That's Delicious. He has also been on a tear in the booth, with loosies like "Big League Chew" and his stunning freestyle on Funkmaster Flex's Hot 97 show. While he didn't drop a project last year--his most recent full-length effort is 2013's Blue Chips 2--he has certainly kept his name in the news and RSS feeds.
Not all of the notoriety has been good. Bronsolinio has also been the topic of choice on talk radio and in rap gossip columns for his sparring with fellow New York rapper Azealia Banks. The two clashed over what Banks considered Bronson's obtuseness with regard to hip-hop's origins and socio-political impact.
In other news, Mark Ronson was on Hot 97 as a guest DJ and premiered "Uptown Funk (remix)" featuring Bronson. Listen to that below thanks to NahRight.
