Alive from Toronto: Action Bronson - "Give Me One Reason" & "Tequila" (Party Supplies, unreleased)




Party Supplies (Justin Nealis) is the ingenious anti-Hip-Hop producer behind the sonic madness that is Blue Chips; Nealis somehow coarsed Action Bronson into rapping over Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, John Cougar Mellencamp, Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam [all on one track!], Extreme, Iron Butterfly, Guns N' Roses, Frank Zappa, Peter Bjorn & John, and Justin Bieber. Now, after nearly 2 years-worth of recording, Action Bronson & Party Supplies are gearing up to FREElease Blue Chips 2 on "The First Day it rains in NOVEMBER," whatever the Hell that means ha. Bronson generously previewed 2 unreleased Blue Chips 2 tracks the other night at the Toronto stop of his 2 High 2 Die tour.


For the sake of continuity and sheer blog-ease, I'm just gonna refer to the new tracks as "Give Me One Reason" and "Tequila" from here on out. It's a little hard to decipher lyrically because we're watching a sub-par fan-shot video; But it clearly sounds like Party Supplies almost expertly flipped both Tracy Chapman's 1996 mega-hit and The Champs' Chicano Rock instrumental smash hit, "Tequila," which was made famous years later for it's use in Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (1985) and The Sandlot (1993). In addition to Blue Chips 2 and his forthcoming VICE Records debut, "ROMANIAN WAITRESSES," Action Bronson may very well be working on a number of long-rumored projects with The Alchemist, Tommy Mas, Statik Selektah, and hopefully Twitter-rapper RiFF RAFF. Party Supplies, on the other hand has teamed up with multi-instrumentalist Sean Mann to record Tough Love, which label Fool's Gold describes as "Half Chromeo, half Easy Rider... blue collar Funk, school gym foot-stompers, and yearning city boy ballads over drum machine beats."
