VICE Records Presents: Action Bronson, Drake Producer Noah "40" Shebib & Omen - "Actin' Crazy" (Mr. Wonderful)




"HERE'S MY NEW JOINT, "ACTIN' CRAZY" PRODUCED BY @OVO40 [& @ProducedbyOmen]. ENJOY.... MR. WONDERFUL MARCH 24th MOTHAF**CCKKKKKKA!!" F**k, That's Delicious super-star, Action Bronson exuberantly Tweeted Wednesday upon the release of his latest single, which almost instantaneously received a co-sign from Hip-Hop aficionado and 21-23 Jump Street leading man, Jonah Hill. It's the second and possibly lead single from Bronson's long-rumored Atlantic/VICE Records debut, Mr. Wonderful. Although a rough tracklist was previously "leaked" by Bronson himself through a stream of haphazard Tweets, VICE unveiled the album's official 13-song tracklist through a press release shared Thursday morning. Mr. Wonderful boasts top-notch production work from Mark Ronson, Drake affiliate Noah "40" Shebib, Party Supplies, 88-Keys, and Alchemist, along with all-star features from Chance The Rapper, Meyhem Lauren, Chauncey Sherod, and "cousin" Big Body Bes. Mark Ronson's Billy Joel-sampling album opener, "Brand New Car" was miraculously "approved by the man himself... due to a hand-written note from both Action Bronson & Mark Ronson exclaiming their admiration to the New York legend; a rare feat achieved by few," the VICE Records press release dramatically laments.


Not entirely unlike his previous releases, "Actin' Crazy" features a one-of-a-kind artwork hand-crafted by artist Freako Rico. Aesthetically, it's comparable to the unique pieces of artwork showcased on Dr. Lecter, Blue Chips, Rare Chandeliers, Blue Chips 2, "Easy Rider," and "A Light In The Addict." For whatever reasons, Freako Rico amazingly sketched Bronson perched atop a blue laser-mounted shark, red laser in the other hand, surrounded by torpedo-wielding zebra fish, floating through space and time, flanked by 90's graffiti bubble letter text ha. "The album is sounding incredible. The whole album is a stand-out. I don't care about individual songs, I'm trying to make a complete, classic project. I just do my music uninfluenced by anybody else, or current trends, and it comes together at the end," Action Bronson poetically described Mr. Wonderful to NME last year. "Nothing needs to have a f**king theme all the time. This is just rap. I'm not trying to make people think I'm some sort of scientific wizard or inspirational poet. F**k that! It's just happy, funny, rugged, rough rap."
