Action Bronson Explains His Mother's Role In His Career

Action Bronson also explains how being a rapper is similar to being a chef.

Action Bronson's past as a chef has helped him in Hip Hop, according to the Queens, New York emcee. The rapper recently spoke about this in an interview with The Columbus Dispatchwhere Bronson discusses his mother's helping hand in his career, along with his culinary work experience.

"It sounds weird, but it’s very, very similar," Bronson says regarding the connection between being a chef and being a rapper. "You have to be creative, think quickly on your feet, work well under pressure — boom, boom, boom. All of those things come into play."

That career shift would not have been possible had it not been for Bronson's mother, the emcee says.

"She gave me the money to make my first mixtape," Action says. "She did everything for me. She’s the best woman."

Despite her role in his start, the rapper's mother only recently witnessed one of live performances. 

"It was amazing," Action says of having her at a show. "She’s lived with me for 30...years. I’m her only boy. Just having her there felt 100 percent." 

After making the transition from cooking to rapping, Action Bronson was also asked about other rappers who have made cookbooks, namely 2 Chainz who released #MEALTIME in 2013 and Coolio who released Cookin' With Coolio in 2009. 

"For God’s sake," Bronson says when the question is posed. "Who’s done a cookbook that’s worth it? Nobody. I’m going to be putting out a cookbook, of course — some real [expletive]. I don’t have a signature dish. I do everything. Everything’s done with masterful skill."

    Bronstien has exactly ZERO memorable songs. the only 'impressive' thing is that a 400 pound bag of white shit can actually whine like that for 45 minutes live, at least when he's healthy enough to show up. ooof, i sneezed and and wrecked my back!!! that's some championship rapper there.

    Action Bronson is an upgrade on Ghostface, Bron Bron makes good music without all the ni&&er nonesense about drugs and violence ni&&ers rap about crime but Bron raps about real life.

      what's "real" about this obese cornball? that he eats and smokes a lot? that he can't see his feet standing up? that he claims his retardation is for his "kids"? nice work "dad"?!

  • Jacques Pepin

    this fat fuck eats ALOT, all the times yes, but how long was he actually a chef that now he's doing a cookbook? retard is as goddamn delusional as he is boring and repetitive. but ofay dumbasses love him like hey, if a dipshit like this is considered "dope," maybe i'm dope too!!!!

    • stupid

      Actually he grew up with family working in a kitchen and has worked in gourmet kitchens for years. probably much more relevant then a fucking coolio cookbook. you dont have to be famous to write a cookbook fuckin housewives write those shits, its about the food. if you can cook you can cook doesn't matter who you are. So much blind hate on this man, if you dont like his music thats fine but why attack him as a person, at least he's not a fucking bank of america CEO or some shit. theres a lot of way worse people out there that ou should be worried about. to each there own. who the fuck cares if he's jewish..you thikn jews are JUST NOW weaseling into rap industry?!?!?! ahahhahaha. ever heard of Jerry Heller..alot of jealousy seems to be underlying a lot of this hate in these comments.
