Action Bronson & Roc Marciano Make The Perfect Way For AG Da Coroner (Audio)
In the 2010s, a collective of MCs has helped revive the grimy New York City sound. In many ways, Roc Marciano’s 2010 solo debut Marcberg was the jump-off. The sparse, self-produced Fat Beats Records affair celebrated the ills of Hempstead, New York street life, and how the underbelly of NYC was still flourishing. To follow, Action Bronson’s arrival (especially 2011’s Bon Appetit) reinforced this renaissance of Timberland construction-cool. The imagery in both MCs (now frequent collaborators) was impressionistic, and made the five boroughs the most exciting place on the Rap map once more.
AG Da Coroner may be poised to be next. A longtime member of the Outdoorsmen collective that includes Bronson, Meyhem Lauren, J-Love, and others, AG has been prominently heard on albums such as Alchemist’s Russian Roulette, Bronson and Statik Selektah’s Well-Done, and Meyhem and Buckwild’s Silk Pyramids.
“Park Ave” is a play on a series of references Bronson, AG, and the collective have made about where (and how) you can catch them. For three MCs raised in a completely different environment than the prestigious Manhattan thoroughfare, this record celebrates their come-up, and just the muscle and mental it took to rise through the ranks. Polo Pirate laces a beat that is the perfect complementary back-drop for this stylish trifecta.
