Rap Game Like… Gym Gems: Action Bronson (@ActionBronson)

Back 4 The Crown Baby, here’s another installment of Gym Gems with QU repper Action Bronsolino. It’s really been 4 years since Action Bronson has graced us with his wit and lyricism but if you’ve listened to just one song from him, chances are you’ve heard a basketball, baseball, wrestling, or football reference. He doesn’t miss a chance to flash us back to the glory days in the NBA and particularly the mid 90s for Knicks fans. Hell, he even gave us a mixtape titled after the classic Blue Chips! Just like Fab he grew up in NYC where hoops reign supreme over most other facets of life. Bars ranging from Rick Pitino, to Derek Harper and even Arvydas Sabonis, Bronson is a student of the game and we have to salute that.
