REVIEW: Saaab Stories – Action Bronson & Harry Fraud

Action Bronson & Harry Fraud - Saab StoriesAction Bronson & Harry Fraud
Saaab Stories
 Vice / Atlantic; 2013

Score (Beats Per Minute scale): 70 / 100

Action Bronson’s new EP, Saaab Stories, is entertaining but the least enjoyable album the Flushing, Queens rapper has released to date. Most of that has to do with Harry Fraud’s production, however, which doesn’t give the MC’s largesse enough room to breathe. Click here to read my review over at Beats Per Minute.

DOWNLOAD: “Like This” – John Crown (feat. Action Bronson)

A lot of nice MC’s are putting in work in the Pac NW these days, but very few sound like actual stars. Tacoma rhymer John Crown is one of those. To me he sounds a lot like Kanye West if Kanye could actually rap; or Freeway if Free had a voice that you could actually listen to for more than three songs at a time. On “Like This” he gets some help from Queens MC Action Bronson and a nice rugged joint by producer Mike Weed. “Like This” is off Crown’s forthcoming Coffee and Beats.
