Foodie rapper Action Bronson (AKA Ill Prosciutto, AKA Bam Bam Bigalow, AKA Bronsolino) is the newest addition to the VICE Records dynasty. We 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, we'll tell you what the video's about: Action plays an Albanian coke lord known as "The Symbol," who's gunning for one last score before quitting the game. The video finds him dealing with crooked cops, fast women, and rival drug gangs. Good, clean fun.
Here's an exclusive download of the track, plus a stream. Fuck with it.
