Music/Life story/About Action Bronson:

Born Ariyan Asllani, in Flushing, Queens, New York, Bronson cannot be mistaken with his signature red facial hair, 5'8, 300 lbs figure, Tattoos and his witty sense of humour. At first listen, many confuse the charismatic Bronson for the legendary "Ghostface Killa", although their styles seem similar, Arian has given Hip Hop an unorthodox approach that screams out originality.

Bronson has continually evolved into a prominent figure in Hip Hop, thanks to his dedication and work ethic. With his own line of limited-edition portable vaporizers, Ariyan Asllani has established himself as a heavy marijuana smoker and isn't afraid to let the world know. Son of an Albanian immigrant father and a Jewish/American mother. Growing up Arian was an only child, however, his two bedroom apartment had housed up to 13 family members including Aunts, Uncles and cousins as well as Kosovo refugees.

With a distinct Queens swagger and an extensive vocabulary, it is hard to sleep on Asllani for too long. Not only has Bronson took the rap game by surprise, but he has been said to be a vital component in the movement that is resurrecting the New York Hip Hop scene.

Quotes By Bronson:

"I just do whatever I do, and put it out there without tryin' to cater to anybody. If you like it, you like it."

"I'm an honorable human being. I know what to do and what not to do, and if I'm wrong, I always apologize. I'm a big enough man to do that."

"I get angry real quick, but I also cool down just as fast. Albanians don't want to deal with anything in the moment."

"I guess I am a rapper. It's weird to be called that, or tell someone that's your profession."

"I want to do an album with Steven Seagal."

"No one raps about food like I do. I rap about fine dishes - like, all kinds of things that only real chefs and real foodies are going to know about."
