It’s been more than five years since Action Bronson burst onto the scene with Dr. Lecter. While that album was seemingly not the Queens, New Yorker’s most acclaimed or best known project, it remains the one that took a local mixtape artist and launched an organic, grassroots movement that made a household, multi-media personality.

In the years since rhyming of breakbeat-based tracks, Bam Bam has dabbled with Psychedelia, incorporated melody, and taken things—at a video level—over the top like Sylvester Stallone. 2015’s Mr. Wonderful was a fully-developed extension of an MC (once accused of copying others) who had clearly found his own lane. “Durag vs. Headband” brings it all home. With his squad in the video (Alchemist, Meyhem Lauren, and Big Body Bes), Bronson doubles down on Knxwledge production that’s remarkably simple. With a drum loop, some piano riffs, and light accents, Bronson drops that whimsical lyricism that made him lovable to so many Hip-Hop Heads.

Bam Bam knows this is back to the premiere formula. Like the beat and chorus, the video is simple—just homies posing with some two rare BMW’s, and one white horse. Bes drops some game on the song too.
