Arian Asllani (born 2 December 1984), better known by his stage name Action Bronson, is an American rapper from Flushing, Queens, New York.
Before entering the rap scene he was a respected fire-flame gourmet chef in New York City, and frequently raps about food in his songs. He hosts his own online cooking show entitled "Action in the Kitchen". He has gained notoriety for lyrically and stylistically resembling rapper Ghostface Killah (with whom he collaborated, along with friend and fellow rapper Termanology, on a song called "Meteor Hammer" from the 2011 compilation album Legendary Weapons). In an interview with HipHopDX, he was asked about how it was to sound like him, and he responded with,
"Yeah, I mean at the end of the day, it’s all good because Ghostface Killah is one of the best rappers alive, so if I sound similar to the best rapper alive then that is fine. To me there is no comparison; he is a legend and I am a newcomer. If I would try and emulate with anyone it would be Kool G Rap, he is the person I look up to the most. I am not upset but at the end of the day I am my own person and no one can take that away from me."
He released his debut studio album Dr. Lecter in 2011, which is available in digital download and also in CD-R on his official website. Action Bronson is an atheist, which he revealed in the song "Not Enough Words" (lyrics: "ask to swear to God, but in that I don't believe though"), from Action Bronson's collaboration album with Statik Selektah, Well Done.
He was recently featured twice on Domo Genesis's & The Alchemist's debut collaboration album No Idols on tracks "Elimination Chamber (also featuring Earl Sweatshirt & Vince Staples) & "Daily News" (also featuring SpaceGhostPurrp & Earl Sweatshirt).
Tiron and Ayomari
Tiron and Ayomari are a hiphop duo out of Atlanta, GA. They are currently signed to The Cafeteria Line record label.
Turner Jackson, a Colorado born, New York City bred MC is ready to lead. Nat Turner, a slave that led a rebellion rooted in the exploitative conditions of the southern slave system, is the inspiration behind Jackson’s moniker.
Coming from a proclaimed “new school mentality,” Jackson’s aim is simple self expression. Hailing from several cities in the east coast, Turner’s main influences are Wale, Styles P, Kanye West, and others that have ushered in a new era of lyricism.
A strong connection to speech and debate gave way to a deeper yearning to convey a message through the spoken word.
Calling on the spirit of his namesake, Jackson believes, that like Nat Turner, the ultimate goal is to facilitate freedom with a higher purpose. Creating music largely in the Hip Hop genre, Turner says his major writing inspirations include Fall Out Boy, John Mayer, Lily Allen, and Taylor Swift, proving his versatility in musical thought.
“Music is about sharing thoughts and sending energy to another person. I am responsible for the message in my music, whether it’s that of destruction or positive impact.”
Described as 21st Century Old School and inspired by hip hop greats such as Tribe Called Quest, Mos Def, and Lupe Fiasco, Colorado rapper D-Stylz began his journey at the bottom but has clawed his way out of obscurity and into the eyes and ears of his friends, family, and most importantly, his fans. Through the motivations of his family, most importantly his grandmother, David Gittings’ deep love
in music brought him to Adams State College where he excelled in the drum line due to his knowledge of percussion, specifically cadence, rhythm and syncopation. But a need for change in his junior year would accelerate David from drumline academic to D-Stylz, an artist with the lyrical fortitude to tackle any subject matter and any beat that might cross his path. With change came a new attitude and outlook on life, from becoming more open-minded with a new sense of laidback style to changing the way he viewed himself and the people around him. Even though his talents lay outside the realm of academia, the progression that David went through in college as not only a person, but as a musician was evident. The music D-Stylz creates speaks to the person he is; his songs are motivating, his lyrics are genuine, his message is inspiring, and his potential and possibilities are endless. From opening for acts such as Mac Miller, Afroman, and the Wu-Tang Clan’s own, Raekwon, to performing local shows in Colorado Springs, Denver, and Fort Collins, D-Stylz has achieved a notable amount of success in the hip hop industry while remaining humble. “Never Satisfied” is something that a person could catch D-Stylz saying to anyone at anytime because David himself is not the normal hip-hop artist; it isn’t about the money and accolades. His drive stems from getting his message out there and affecting the masses through his lyrics. And now, D-Stylz’s fans and family have begun to sit back and watch greatness unfold because they truly expect nothing less.
