Better than: Any action in the kitchen.
"Alright, time for a rap show," Action Bronson shouted.
With a bottle of Hennesy in hand, the Albanian-Jewish rapper passed out several plastic cups to those in the front. He poured what remained in the bottle into each of them. When there was none left, Bronson signaled a woman upstairs in VIP to toss down an unfinished bottle of Grey Goose vodka to mix in with the cups containing Hennessy.
After playing bartender, Bronson did what he set out to do, a rap show.
"Been on the honor roll, sculptures of my body out in Nagano," rapped Bronson as he started off the set with the first song off his mixtape, Blue Chips, following up with second song off the same project "Steve Wynn."
"Waiting for an applause," said Bronson after receiving a low volume of applause after the song, then flexing his right bicep showing his gun tattoo.
While performing "Double Breasted," Bronson jumped down and continued while fans rushed to take a picture with him or have an opportunity to rub his head. Yes, that happened various times.
The love for those in attendance did not end there. Being a considerate rapper, Bronson passed the joint he had been smoking to those in the front and encouraged them to "puff puff pass" before it made its way back into the rapper's hands.

Bronson, again, jumped off the stage reciting lines like, "Well, me and Docker eating dinner at the brothel/ Never sniff that blanco, that's word to OJ's Bronco," from "Larry Csonka," as fans mimicked his words while attempting to take more pictures and cop a feel of his crown.
Though Bronson said, "Bye. One. Peace. Thank you," after performing "Shiraz" and the Alchemist produced "The Symbol," fans stood in their places in the hopes for more. And in no more than a few seconds Bronson came back to perform his half of "Bird On A Wire." At the same time, as Bronson delivered line after line, he continued showing fans affection by signing flyers, shirts, and even shoes they held up.
"Fuck it, I'll rap again," said Bronson. And he did, performing "Hookers At The Point" and continued his tour de Green Room, making his way to his merch table, rounding out the night and solidifying his Florida fan base.
Wish List: A table set up with food cooked by Action Bronson
Personal Bias: Bronson was pretty serious in action.
The Crowd: Still trying to figure out a cool new word for hip-hop hipsters.
