“A different cloth is what I’m cut from,” Action Bronson rasps over finely blunted rumbling on the newly shared “Actin Crazy,” produced by Drake’s left-hand man Noah “40″ Shebib. That’s just a piece of the fabric from the New York rap chef’s long-teased album Mr. Wonderful, which he announced today will be released on March 24 via Vice/Atlantic.
Chance the Rapper will turn in a guest appearance on Mr. Wonderful, as will Meyhem Lauren, Big Body Bes, Party Supplies and Chauncey Shero. Along with 40, producers on the album include Mark Ronson, the Alchemist and, again, Party Supplies, who’s a longtime Bronson collaborator.
Oh, and opening track “Brand New Car” features a Billy Joel sample. According to a press release, the Piano Man approved the use of his music after Bronson and Amy Winehouse/Bruno Mars collaborator Ronson (cool rhyme, by the way) sent Joel a handwritten note “exclaiming their admiration.” Maybe he had read about them in The New Yorker?
