A handful of readers who saw that Roosh Williams recruited Action Bronson for his latest effort might have unearthed a helmet or suit of armor, preparing to weather a storm of aggressive, slap-you-in-the-face bars. Said readers will undoubtedly feel foolish upon pressing play, however, as they hear two relaxed emcees over a smooth, easy-going beat from Trakksounds. As the production struts, Roosh gets things started off right with a boisterous yet laid back flow that despite its power has a certain nonchalance to it. Bronson paces Williams and, while his flow is not as aggressive, more than makes up for it with a lyrical output that is business as usual, rattling off colorful, oddly poetic rhymes. Is this collab a Beautiful Thing, or is Bronson better suited for more raw and rugged records? Let us know in the comments below and be sure to check out Roosh’s forthcoming album, déjà Roo: Times Have Changed , which drops early next month.
