Video: Action Bronson – Shiraz

Another winner from the Outdoorsmen crew, continuing the theme of fine dining that Meyhem mentioned when I interviewed him. This is taken from the Dr. Lecter Jr album, which is due in the near future. Produced by Bronson and Team Facelift, directed by Tommy Mas and Matt Raz.

Beautiful track. If I were Ghostface, I’d be a little bit ill at this dude though. I’m not. So rock-on.

This is the best shit

Everyone’s mentioning Ghost, but I hear more of an AZ influence in his flow. Regardless, dude is nice and definitely a breath of fresh air. One of the better NYC newcomers in a minute. Queens get it!

One thing I really dig about this guy in the videos I’ve seen so far is that he’s having a good time doing what he does. Here we are 2010 and it’s still all about the screwface mug and heavy dark shit almost every time. If that’s the way you feel when you write/rhyme, then by all means, do you. But this dude takes me back to when cats weren’t allowed to smile and have fun in their videos/shows. I’m def gonna check out this guy’s album when he drops it.

Gotta say I have been heavily impressed with Action. Nice flow, smooth delivery. Can def see the Ghostface comparasion, but dude is nice.

Dont understand why its called Shiraz tho – all I seen was Prosciutto & him getting a homeless womans digits – Not exactly fine dining IMO

What the fuck is an ‘outdoorsmen’? I ain’t seen these dudes fishing on the pier at Coney or Canarsie, or dropping lines from the Cross Bay Bridge.

Hell, I’ve not even seen ‘em picking up trash at Orchard Beach, thee #1 outdoor summer NYC job (I was lifefguard there) so, uh…

Action said it, same guy on camera or when the camera’s off… not tryin’ to be anyone but himself.

I doubt this guy woke up one day and said: I’m gonna rap like Ghostface…get over it, evryone kinda sounds like someone else…the beat’s dope, but not my cup of tea.
