00:00
This is Action Bronson, oh shit.
00:02
I have a fucking hole in my pocket.
00:05
Oh, and I'm going undercover on the Internet.
00:08
It's Actually Me.
00:10
(typing)
00:13
That was a good one, come on that was funny.
00:16
I'm all ears.
00:18
Let's do this, let's do this.
00:20
Alright so we're gonna start off with Twitter.
00:24
@StankyPack, woo, woo!
00:32
I cut the beard because 6 a.m., I was stoned.
00:37
Stoned beyond belief and uh, you know,
00:42
when you go and you try to give yourself
00:44
a little bit of trim, a little shape-up,
00:46
it usually doesn't work out well
00:48
and that's what happened, I made one wrong move,
00:51
I used a number three, what was I doing using number three
00:55
on a fucking beard like that?
00:57
Of course it was gonna take a big chunk out of it.
01:00
So then I had to just take it all off.
01:02
I hadn't seen my face for twelve years.
01:05
I forgot what I looked like, but I am a hunk,
01:08
and I'm hot, there's no doubt about it
01:10
whether I have face on my hair or not.
01:12
The structure of this face, the Balkan features.
01:17
That's why I didn't even wear sunglasses in this segment,
01:20
I needed to show these motherfuckers off.
01:22
(sparkles)
01:27
To be honest, I feel like when I eat standing up,
01:31
it just falls straight down and doesn't get stuck
01:33
around this area, you know?
01:35
I feel like it's better for the metabolism
01:37
and it keeps me moving also, it's like I'm working out
01:40
and eating at the same time.
01:42
I have an issue with nervous legs,
01:44
where I do this a lot and I can't stop from swaying,
01:48
it runs in my family.
01:49
(tweeting sounds)
01:51
What's next?
01:52
Who's my current favorite wrestler?
01:53
I like Finn Balor, that's my guy,
01:56
but I like the Japanese wrestling.
01:57
I liked old shit. I liked Psicosis, I liked Sabu,
02:01
I like, uh, who else do I like?
02:03
I like Rey Mysterio when he was still mysterious.
02:05
(tweeting sounds)
02:07
Zesty Celesty, celestiafiestia, says
02:15
You're looking at it.
02:17
A hunk. A fox. You know?
02:21
Pull the picture up of me in high school.
02:22
It's fucking embarrassing, but it's gorgeous.
02:24
Honestly, people would die for the hair that I had,
02:27
literally on the floor, and just die.
02:30
(tweeting sounds)
02:31
Done!
02:32
Alright we'll move on to Instagram now.
02:35
Oh look at that, that's a picture of my dome.
02:38
The back of my dome, celestial cathedrals,
02:41
done by Dan Santoro, one of greatest tattoo,
02:46
tattoo artists of this century.
02:48
That's beauty right there.
02:49
I'm a piece of art, I'm a walking art exhibit.
02:53
This is an installation that we're doing right now anyway.
02:56
In essence.
02:57
Yeah, oh wait, I didn't even answer the fucking,
03:00
I didn't realize there was a question on Instagram.
03:03
Is it a cathedral? Yes.
03:05
Reddit.
03:06
Here we are.
03:09
(inhales)
03:14
White Bronco is coming, it's a fucking journey.
03:18
Oh it's some be- (coughs)
03:23
It's unbelievable.
03:25
Wasn't I signed to Vice?
03:27
Wonder if this affects my TV shows.
03:28
No because we carved the TV shows
03:31
out of any other deals we did.
03:33
Catch me everywhere Vice related for now.
03:37
What's next? Quora.
03:39
Quora, quora, what is this called?
03:47
I'd say that I'm a renaissance rapper
03:49
and I'm also a medieval, futuristic rapper.
03:53
I would say that there's really no label
03:55
that you could put on me whatsoever.
03:57
I draw influences from like twenty lifetimes ago.
04:01
This already happened, I'm fucking bored already.
04:04
What's next?
04:06
What is it like to know me?
04:07
Know me in a biblical sense?
04:11
Or to know me?
04:13
To know me is to actually understand me,
04:17
and for that to happen,
04:18
you have to feel what I feel inside of my feelings.
04:26
(clicks)
04:29
(blows raspberry)
04:31
Right now, 315.
04:35
And I wear it well.
04:37
It's a lot. It's in the midsection.
04:38
I have a broad shoulder base.
04:42
Fucking pretty jacked
04:43
(kisses)
04:44
Considering I haven't done anything in years.
04:46
My legs, that's where all the, you know,
04:48
the legs are where the power is.
04:50
I squat thousands of pounds,
04:54
leg press like you can't believe.
04:57
One would compare me to, if you were gonna compare me
05:00
to anybody in life, Mariusz Pudzianowski.
05:06
Who's next.
05:07
YouTube.
05:10
Ah, this is beautiful picture of me
05:12
and my friend Clovis in front of Yard Restaurant.
05:15
People in Paris don't even mind if you light up at a cafe?
05:18
I don't care whether they mind or not to tell you the truth,
05:22
I don't mind, I'm not here for anybody else's acceptance.
05:26
I have to do what's right for me.
05:28
I have to get my shit right.
05:30
(speaking French)
05:33
That's what they would scream to me
05:35
in the street when I smoke weed.
05:37
They usually tell you what they're smoking,
05:39
they say Hashish and then they give you
05:41
their favorite futbol player, Giroud,
05:44
Olivier Giroud, you know?
05:46
Tabac, tebac, he's smoking a fucking cigarette,
05:49
hashish, hashish, with hash in it.
05:52
What's next?
05:54

Bronson was born in Flushing, Queens.
06:01
I arrived, like Terminator, naked,
06:06
kneeled, kneeling in front of a fucking fence on fire,
06:10
that's how I arrived into this world.
06:13
And then I went into a biker bar
06:15
and I stole my first outfit.
06:17
Action Bronson cites fellow American rappers
06:20
Kool G Rap, Nas, Cam'ron, Mobb Deep, UGK,
06:23
and the Wu-Tang Clan as major influences.
06:26
I feel like all of those are spot on.
06:29
But I would also add to the music
06:31
that really influenced me early on like
06:33
some of, like Michael Jackson, like Carlos Santana
06:38
was one of the first albums I loved, like Queen.
06:40
To Albanian singers, wedding singers from Albania, that
06:43
come and play fucking electric clarinet in your ear, crazy.
06:48
(imitates clarinet)
06:49
Nuts, motherfuckers dancing with the...
06:54
That's a handkerchief that I'm spinning.
06:57
(laughs)

Yahoo Answers.
07:02
(sings Yahoo theme)
07:05
Did Action Bronson deserve jew of the year?
07:10
Probably not. I'm a fucking human being, a man.
07:14
I'm an outer being, a space cadet,
07:16
who knows what this means?
07:17
What's a Jew?
07:19
Well thank you guys for asking me these questions.
07:22
It's been an eye-opening event.
07:25
Turn the thing back so I can see that
07:26
it's actually me on the fucking camera, flip it over.
07:32
That's a hunk.
07:34
If I've ever seen one, and I've only seen one.
07:37
It's me.
07:39
Thank you.
