WATCH ACTION BRONSON’S NEW VIDEO FOR “THE SYMBOL”
Foodie rapper Action Bronson (AKA Ill Prosciutto, AKA Bam Bam Bigalow, AKA Bronsolino) is the newest addition to the VICE Records dynasty. Us here at Noisey are psyched as hell, mostly because this means he’ll be bringing us doggie bags of his famous wild imported Irish goat, which apparently he makes in a BBQ pit somewhere in Queens. Mmm.
Today he dropped the video to “The Symbol,” the first cut off his upcoming Rare Chandeliers mixtape, which was produced by West Coast producer The Alchemist, who you probably know from a resume that includes work with Dilated Peoples, Mobb Deep, Just Blaze, Ghostface, Odd Future… we could go on, but we won’t. Instead, here’s an exclusive download of the track, plus a stream. Fuck with it.
WE SIGNED GROWING!
Growing don’t come across as a “my favorite band” kind of band, like Slade or Tiger Trap, which is unfair to them, because they should be everybody’s favorite band. In a field where farting into a delay pedal is the norm (experimental music) and acts who do anything other than fart into a delay pedal are hailed as musical geniuses, Growing actually are for-serious musical geniuses. Letting them baste your brain with their music in a live setting feels like taking MDMA, especially if you’ve taken MDMA. And now they’re all OURS.
Vice Records has signed Growing and will be putting out their new album Pumps in April.
This song is called “Hormone.” And if you wanna know more about them and like watching things, check out this Practice Space they did with us on VBS.
