Action Bronson to Join the Rapture 2014 Line Up!

ACTION BRONSON TO JOIN THE RAPTURE 2014 LINE UP
TICKETS ON SALE 10AM TOMORROW – THURSDAY OCTOBER 31

US rapper Action Bronson from Queens, New York has been confirmed to join Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, J Cole and David Dallas on the NZ Rapture 2014 line up.

A former chef, this Queens MC and former XXL Cover Freshman is known for his gritty style and slick rhymes.  His latest EP Saaab Stories debuted
Top 10 in the US and solidified his position as one of the hottest rappers today.

Action Bronson:  Born and raised in Flushing, Queens, Bronson wasn’t even ten when an illicit copy of the Wu-Tang Clan album 36 Chambers landed in the tape deck at a friend’s sleepover party.  His life changed forever and soon he discovered another idol, Kool G Rap.  Bronson later studied at the Art Institute of New York City’s culinary program and went on to join the restaurant business as a chef, but in 2009 he exited the kitchen and entered the studio.  In 2011 he would release his debut album, Dr. Lecter.  In 2012, he released Blue Chips, a collaborative album with Brooklyn-based producer Party Supplies, while the Alchemist-helmed mixtape Rare Chandeliers followed later in the year.  His 2013 EP Saaab Stories was produced by Harry Fraud and launched his major-label deal with Warner Bros. via the Vice imprint.
