Action Bronson, New York’s sensational hip hop artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Ogden Theater!
Action Bronson (birth name Arian Asllani) was born in Flushing (New York) in 1983 and is of Albanian descent. He worked as a fire-flame gourmet chef in New York City and had his own online cooking show called Action in the Kitchen. Rapping was initially just a hobby but after he broke his leg in the kitchen, he decided to pursue a career in rapping. He cites rappers Kool G Rap, Nas, Cam'ron, Mobb Deep, UGK and Wu-Tang Clan, as his biggest influences and early in his career, he was compared with Ghostface Killah (of Wu-Tang Clan) for his lyrics and rapping style. He was asked in an interview about the comparison and he said, “Yeah, I mean at the end of the day, it's all good because Ghostface Killah is one of the best rappers alive, so if I sound similar to the best rapper alive then that is fine. To me there is no comparison; he is a legend and I am a newcomer.” He’s had a stellar career with 3 studio albums, 2 EPs, 22 singles, and 4 mix tapes. His latest album (Mr. Wonderful) hit #3 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and #7 on the US Billboard 200.
