Blue Chips: Action Bronson & Party Supplies - "Contemporary Man" (Peter Gabriel)

I can picture it now: A young Action Bronson, sitting on the couch with a tub of Neapolitan ice cream... basking in self-pity as he re-watches Sixteen Candles. Now maybe it wasn't EXACTLY like that - But the one main conclusion you can definitely draw from "Contemporary Man" is that Action Bronson (27) was in fact an 80's-loving kid. Bronsonelli wastes no time @ all and immediately laces up Party Supplies' fine-crafted Boom-Bap riddim. For all intensive purposes, "Contemporary Man" draws inspiration from a wide range of unique sample sources: Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, John Cougar [Mellencamp], Huey Lewis & The News, Charlie Sheen, and Lisa Lisa. Action Bronson & Party Supplies' collaborative effort, Blue Chips will be released to The Internet(s) sometime in February, by way of Fool's Gold. The mixtape seems to be a musical homage to Nick Nolte & Shaq/"Penny" Hardaway's similarly-titled 1994 basketballing film.
