Action Bronson & Rick Ross Are 2 Rap Heavyweights With Blue Chip Skills (Audio)
At the top of the decade, imagining Action Bronson and Rick Ross together on a song may have been a reach. Bronson was a symbol of New York City DIY Hip-Hop, upholding the ’90s sound that influences him. Meanwhile, Ross was ushering in the sound of the clubs, making pounding anthems with Lex Luger and company, while expanding the Maybach Music Group into a formidable movement for the ages.
Bronson has since risen to be one of Atlantic Records’ Rap stars. Ross’ is ever strong too, with this year’s Rather You Than Me marking some of his best work since the first half of the decade. For “9-24-7000,” they team up to show their overlap. Notably, the former chef and the restaurant franchisee don’t make the moment about food. Instead, they talk down on their enemies and use vivid imagery to describe their past exploits on a smooth, light jazzy track courtesy of Harry Fraud. The New York producer has worked extensively with Ross and M.M.G. in the past.
