We all know Action Bronson is dedicated to his borough, but just how dedicated is he? To demonstrate his local pride, the Flushing emcee has elected to bring us his latest effort Live From Kissena Blvd, a major thoroughfare in central Queens. OK—I’m guessing from the sound quality that this jam, the untagged version of a previously-leaked record off Funk Flex’ next compilation, was not recorded in the middle of a busy street. Nonetheless, Bronson’s Queens spirit drips from every aspect of the cut, from his free-associative verses to the Kool G Rap samples on the hook of co-headliner Statik Selektah‘s brassy beat. Feeling it? You’ll be able to find Kissena Blvd and many more bangers from NYC’s best and brightest on Who You Mad At? Me or Yourself?, dropping digitally this Tuesday, April 17.
