Throughout his career, Action Bronson has been frequently compared to Ghostface Killah of the iconic Wu-Tang Clan. His rapping, that is. He’s a white guy with a huge crazy beard – no one’s mixing them up on the street.
Anyway, about a month ago, Bronson went on ESPN’s “SportsNation” and talked a bit about the constant comparisons. Things started off well enough – he said comparisons between rappers are inevitable, like comparing Coke to Pepsi, and pointed out that he was flattered to be mentioned alongside “one of the greats.” So far, so good, A.B.!
But then things took… a turn. Responding to another anchor’s praise of his own work, Bronson added “he’s not rapping like this no more.” It was widely seen as a diss on Tony Starks, even by the other panelists, implying that his latest releases aren’t as good as his Wu-Tang work, or classic solo albums like “Supreme Clientele” and “The Pretty Toney Album.”
What? You’re not intimately familiar with 2004’s “Fishscale”? Literally how dare you.
