Action Bronson swapped a life as a chef for that of a rap star, hence why his rhymes often contain references to his former passion. Born in Queens, he released his debut album Dr Lecter in 2011 which was praised by Pitchfork for being ' a rock-solid, ridiculously fun New York rap album, one that recalls the city's past glories without ever feeling like an act of stylistic exhumation. '
Compared in style to Ghostface Killer, he's been hyped by 1Xtra DJ's Toddla T and Semtex plus collaborated with The Prodigy, Kendrick Lamar and Yelawolf. Bronson is bound to treat the 1Xtra stage to a notoriously brilliant set.
