Action Bronson Trio of Rap for Three Tune Tuesday Week 50

in Music9 days ago

It's Tuesday people of the world, which of course means one thing and one things only, yep, that's right it's Three Tune Tuesday. It's a time of the week when lovers of music, tunes and craic bring the community three of their finest and brightest tunes to share with their blockchain friends here on Hive.

This week marks the 50th week of Three Tune Tuesday. It started off with me just sharing tunes into the void, but little by little others joined and now I'm thrilled that we have a little corner of Hive where we come and share our tunes every Tuesday, long may it continue.

Amazingly for someone, who listens to quite a bit of rap, mainly Older stuff from back in the day, I think it actually took me until week 49 to share a rap tune, which fell under the theme of last week's post which was Mamas, so 2Pac's Dear Mama got a twirl in my Trio. This led to a good conversation with my Glasgow friend @tengolotodo about Rap and we both said we'd hit up three Rap tunes this week, so here I am in week 50 and I have a great rapper to share with you.

Something to bear in mind with Rap is to not get too bogged down with the lyrics, they are telling stories and introduce characters to us, so try not to be offended by any of the songs or lyrics or videos I share below. This guy is really talented, so do try to give him a chance even if you don't like Rap.

We are adding New posters and retaining our core of regulars here on #TTT which is fantastic. Let's keep it growing and that playlist that @blackdaisyft is updating when she can will hit the 300 mark in no time.

Weekly, I try to find an hour or two to listen to all of the fantastic music shared from like-minded folk from around the globe. This has lead me to genres I don't know well and to some amazing new bands and artists and has even introduced me to some musical instruments I did not know existed.

I hope you enjoy the tunes - be sure to tell me all about it in the comments below and above all else, please enjoy the rest of your Tuesday - smile at a stranger, rub a dog, be a nice human to someone who was not expecting it - peace out.

For those unfamiliar with TTT or Three Tune Tuesday....

The jist is as follows

Every Tuesday I'm going to share 3 songs which I like to listen to and I invite your feedback in the comments below. Better still, why not have a blast of your own Three Tune Tuesday and mention me in the post and I'll come and find the post and upvote it. If you could also use #ttt or #threetunetuesday tags that would be great. It'll be a sweet way for us all to discover new music. You'll also be in with a chance of winning the prize - more on that later.

Here are my week forty eight recommendations for Three Tune Tuesday

** Drum roll please.....**

Action Bronson - "Easy Rider"

This one is a bit of mash up and a good intro into the world of Action. He is a character and for me the world needs more characters. Things get a bit boring if we all look the same, dress the same, sing the same.

“We took acid for 10 days straight up in the Mountains, started running with the stallions" kind of sums up this song - it's one that works much better if you watch the video as well, which is actually the case with most of his songs. His songs tell little stories, which are usually a bit mad, but I love the instruments, the lyrics, the video, the whole package here, let me know if you agree.

Lyrics

Praise the lord, I was born to drive boat
Feeling like Slash in front of the chapel
I'm leaned back with the Les Paul
Shit I smoke is like cholesterol
Spilled dressin' on the vest at the festival,
The best of all, had a midget Puerto Rican at my beck and call
Best believe that there was neck involved
Fucked around and almost wrecked the Saab
Uh, we took acid for ten days straight up in the mountains
Started running with the stallions
Playing frisbee in the West Indies, did the tango with my kidneys
Eyes open, now I know just who my kids need
Rockin' very loose pants, yeah
Rockin' very loose pants, yeah
Bury a million in the sand, by the clock tower
Before I die, take a hot shower
Ride the Harley into the sunset, Ride the Harley into the sunset
Ride the Harley into the sunset, Ride the Harley into the sunset
By chance I seen her in the lobby of the Ritz
With her man, the one that swings a hockey stick
I was wearing all white, and my hair was looking precious
Shit, I might cop a chest and a dresser
A little machine to make espresso
I heard your bitch still wears Ecko
Hide the drugs behind the box of De Cecco
Live from the Expo, it's me
I wear the wolf in the winter, steer the coupe from the center
Who gives a fuck, I'm a sinner
I had dreams of fuckin' Keri Hilson in my Duncans
Woke up naked at the Hilton with a bitch that look like Seal's cousin
Bite the eel by the dozen (Got to take it for the team)
Bite the eel by the dozen
Pump the bass in the trunk, shit rattled like a baby hand
Except this toy cost 80 grand
And I'm crazy tan, from all the places that I've been
Just from writing words with a pen
Tell the pilot "Land the plane" on Roosevelt and Main
Put a jacuzzi on the seven train
And lay John Coltrane play with that cocaine face
I know your crabs from that Old Bay taste
The brass band was seven pieces, my bitch's name is Peaches
We got twin Mac elevens with the features
Shit you barely got sneaker money
So much dick in their mouths, that's why these motherfuckers speaking funny
You need to speak clearer dear, cause I can't hear ya (I can't hear ya)
You need to speak clearer dear, cause I can't hear ya
The Magic Johnson of the game
These lames don't want to play with me
Smile on your face, but I really know you hatin' me
I know you mad, cause I'm sick, and it's plain to see, it's me
Ride the Harley into the sunset

Action Bronson - Actin Crazy

Who wouldn't like messing about with a green screen if they had the chance? Action definitely had the craic making this music video, I especially enjoyed the splits and that insane slam dunk!

Lyrics

Yeah
Uh
Opportunity be knockin'
Let a motherfucker in

Opportunity be knockin', you gotta let a motherfucker in
I kiss my mother on the cheek, tell her that I love her
You ain't gotta worry 'bout a thing, I got it covered
Why you think I'm out here actin' crazy?
Why you think I'm out here actin' crazy?
Why you think I'm out here actin' crazy?
Ma, you know I'm still your little baby

All my life I was a fuck-up, now I pull the truck up
Same bitch stuck up, now she wanna suck us
See me hangin' out the window screamin', "What, what!?"
No more tough luck, a different cloth is what I'm cut from
Baby, oh, my Lord
The cops chasin' Bronson in an all-white Ford
Shit, I'm on all-night tour
Bitch, I'm alright, but I'm off that raw
I'm in a robe dancin' salsa on the top floor
You would swear I'm Puerto Rican, but I'm not, Lord
Hot hoes every city that we go, singin'
"Heads high, kill 'em with it now"
Uh, all I do is eat oysters
And speak six languages in three voices
It's Adriatic Summers on sail boat
Don't even try to call, I'm not available for nothin'
Unless it's stupid paper, hop out the Studebaker
With Anita Baker, uh

Opportunity be knockin', you gotta let a motherfucker in
I kiss my mother on the cheek, tell her that I love her
You ain't gotta worry 'bout a thing, I got it covered
Why you think I'm out here actin' crazy?
Why you think I'm out here actin' crazy?
Why you think I'm out here actin' crazy?
Ma, you know I'm still your little baby

Uh, I feel so alive, I think I shit myself
I should kiss myself
I'm starin' at the man inside the mirror
The reflection shows a wolf though
Goddamn, I'm still cute, ho (yeah)
All my women play the flute
Saw me plate some melon and prosciutt'
Left handed, make the Fender cry
Count money with a reverend's smile, the Devil's eye
Half Cherokee and Gemini, uh
Motherfuckers'll dump heat, from Jump Street
And turn your chest plate to lunch meat
I'm in a Humvee, lookin' like a young me
Now these motherfuckers all wanna be chubby
I switch the season, now the hair's curled
Tan skin, I need a bad girl
'Cause James Brown said "It's A Man's World"
In a Trans-Am Twirl, the burner handle made of pearl
That's just "Daddy's Little Girl"

Opportunity be knockin', you gotta let a motherfucker in
I kiss my mother on the cheek, tell her that I love her
You ain't gotta worry 'bout a thing, I got it covered
Why you think I'm out here actin' crazy?
Why you think I'm out here actin' crazy?
Why you think I'm out here actin' crazy?
Ma, you know I'm still your little baby

Opportunity be knockin' (knockin')
Let-let a motherfucker in (let that bitch in, son)
'Tu-'tununity be knockin' (uh)
Let-let the motherfucker in (let a motherfucker in)

Uh, please
Sweet
Mr. Baklava
Ain't tryna be broke

Action Bronson feat. Chance The Rapper - Baby Blue

This was the first song from Action that I heard, so for that reason it is still one of my favorites, it just flows and his rhymes just flow out from him, as rappers go he has exceptional flow and is actually playing a gig in the Academy in Dublin later this month. I would be tempted to go along, but most of my friends who like rap now live in Australia and Canada, so that may not happen.

Let me know what you thought about the tunes below, I'm especially interested to hear what the non Rap fans think about Action?

Lyrics

Why you always all on my back?
Why you gotta do me like that?
Why you gotta act like a bitch when I'm with you?
Baby girl, I'm blue

Because you treat me like shit
I paid for the bed and never even slept in it
I paid for that crib and never stepped foot in
And now somebody else is eating all the pudding
Things change, now my dashboard wooden
All black Benz, like a young Doc Gooden
Dark shades, cause I'm stone crazy
Girl, we grown, stop playing on my phone, baby
All your childish attempts to make me angry fall short
Which only fuels the rage you have, because you have nothing
Understandable, I'm shining brilliant with five Brazilians
There were times I used to hide my feelings
Now I'm butt naked in the Lamborghini
And motherfuckers can't see me
Wait 'til this chick see me on TV, I make the shit look easy
Who would've thought I hit you right back?

Why you always all on my back?
Why you gotta do me like that?
Why you gotta act like a bitch when I'm with you?
Baby girl, I'm blue

So many women wanna call me baby
And you wonder why the fuck that I ain't call you lately
Some would say that I'm the symbol for sex and uh
Others would hate, but I don't give 'em no breath
Go on a date, I'm at the crib with the chef and uh, that's me
And you could order whatever
The specialty is white snake and underwear sauce
You could probably catch me somewhere where the sun is next
And I understand that's only cause I'm popular
I'm getting topped off in the front row of the opera
As Bocelli sings the celly rings
I gotta go, you'll never know how good it feels to lay in bed with king
I'm not exactly flawless, but I'm gorgeous, just like a horse is
I know the thought of me succeeding makes a lot of people nauseous
Still, I'm on the back of the boat taking pictures with the swordfish

Why you always all on my back?
Why you gotta do me like that?
Why you gotta act like a bitch when I'm with you?
Baby girl, I'm blue

I hope you get a paper cut on your tongue
From a razor in a paper cup
I hope every soda you drink already shaken up
I hope your dreams dry like raisins in the baking sun
I hope your titties all saggy in your early 20's
I hope there's always snow in your driveway
I hope you never get off Fridays
And you work at a Friday's that's always busy on Fridays
I hope you win the lottery and lose your ticket
I hope it's Ben and Socrates poop all up in your kitchen
I hope the zipper on your jacket get stuck
And your headphones short, and your charger don't work
And you spill shit on your shirt
I hope your tears don't hurt, and I can smile in your face
Cut my losses, how Delilah changed my locks to a fade
I hope you happy, I hope you happy
I hope you ruined this shit for a reason, I hope you happy, ah

Why you always all on my back?
Why you gotta do me like that?
Why you gotta act like a bitch when I'm with you?
Baby girl, I'm blue

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la

Hi there!
I have to confess I'm not very fond of Rap. But lately, I have listened to some songs that have been catching on. My son likes it, and that means that from time to time, I have no choice but to listen to it. I'll tell him about Action Bronson. I don't know if he knows him. Of the three songs, I'll take the third one.

And congratulations on week 50!!! 🎉🥳🎊🍾 For more to come!🥂

I have to confess I'm not very fond of Rap.

You are not alone there and many of my friends and family are the same and I can see why people my not like the genre or some of the rappers in it for many different reasons, but for me, I have always liked rap, moreso because of the imaginative rhymes that some of these guys can come up with on the spot and the beats that blend in with it. There are not many genres that I don't like to be fair, as for me good music is just good music, it does not really matter if its rock, rap, classical, folk, jazz whatever..

Let me know what your son makes of Action Bronson and thanks for stopping by and for the well wishes on 50 weeks.

I also like most genres, but with Rap it's a bit like with reggaeton, although there are a few exceptions of both that I like.

My son is a music lover. He loves music and has made me discover many singers and groups, not only of these days but also some old ones. And this morning, I told him while driving him to school that I had some new music for him. So I will tell you about my son and Action Bronson soon hehe ;)

Oh shoot I forgot we talked about rap🤣🤣🤣
Will be back to listen to these ones!

Not a bother, sure any three tunes will do fine if you've got the time 👍🎼

Oh for sure, I will be releasing it ;)
Just watching the footy

Just stuck it on, great game so far in second half, Villa giving them a good rattle!

Well I think City will romp it next year with Haaland so Liverpool had to do it this year.
Villa if they got some consistency could be a dark house next year for the Euro spots.

Ya City will be a different beast altogether with Haaland in their team, he is just so good, the kid has everything and also a good down to earth temperament from what I can see, £85.5m is a great deal in my eyes, I just wish Arsenal had gotten in there, as he is exactly what we need right now. Villa are a good shout actually, they could easily be the West Ham of next season going on a good run - they have good players and Gerard looks to be getting the most out of them.

Years ago I was a Chelsea fan, used to have some mental days when I was working in London, then I went off them when Abramavich bought them, so went to the Den and supported Millwall.
As soon as Arteta went to be your manager I started supporting them, loved him as a Rangers player, so cultured and the Spanish U21 captain at the time. So I didn't like the abuse he got at the beginning. Hopefully now the doubters are gone and he gets backing. He did some job in changing the culture.
Villa well they have decent fans, but the brains behind Gerrard is Mike Beale, as a coach he is second to none. Be interesting to see what they do and if they can attract top players.

Hey hey! How about that?! Week 50 and going strong 💪💪💪 I wonder how many of us will still be here when we get to week 100 😁. And I'm watching you my friend! I'll be here more often checking up on you, I won't let you be down that easily 🤗 We need to get this awesome initiative you created going 😍 What would we do without you and #TTT? 😱

As for the tunes, excelent 3 sellection, unknown until now, to me 😍😍 I really enjoyed the beats 🥁🥁 I specially liked that last one 😉 I must say Rap has grown on me in the last years... A few years back I didn't understood it that much 😅

At the time I only like this one song that mashs up together that portuguese musical genre Fado with Rap 😊 Although it's in portuguese I'll leave it here for you if you're interested!

Spoiler alert is a bit dark, sad song in case you're not in the mood for it 😆

!LUV

I really liked that song, mashing genres together doesn't always work, but it definitely works here, no doubt about it. What does Fado mean? I'm assuming it's some traditional Portuguese genre.

Hard to believe it's been fifty weeks already! It's crazy how fast the time is whirring past! Bog thanks to you as well for both spreading the word to more and more people and updating the Spotify playlist (when you get time, no pressure! It's amazing we even have 200+ songs there already)

I hope you are getting plenty of rest and recharging your batteries for a fun summer ahead.

Yeah Fado is an unique music genre in the world. You could say it's like a traditional tune. It always has a portuguese guitar following the singer. It's a bit different, with more strings and a different melody to it.

And you're welcome! I'm very glad to bring more people to #TTT! We will be hitting the 300+ songs on that playlist in no time if all the regulars keep posting every week 😁

I hope you are getting plenty of rest and recharging your batteries for a fun summer ahead.

I'm actually been quite active the last days! I'm preparing a new type of content and I'm a bit nervous and also excited hehehe! Although in a few weeks I'm going to a festival FINALLY!!!!!!!! So, there will be plenty new content about music for me to post about 😁😁😁😁 I thristy for some outdoor fun!!

Ah fantastic, live music is something I love, so festivals are something I love, but it's a good few years since I went to one. I'll have to change that soon...

Fado sounds cool and unique, I think you shared some songs from that genre in your early TTT weeks if I'm not mistaken.

Yeah I haven't been in one since the pandemic started, almost 3 years ago 😱 I'm really looking forward to go there. It's an Islamic Festival so I'll be hearing a lot of new tunes for sure 😍

You're totally right! Nice memory 😊. That post was actually my second post ever, here on HIVE 😁.

It's an Islamic Festival so I'll be hearing a lot of new tunes for sure 😍

Nice one, I look forward to hearing all about it soon and I hope you guys have an absolute ball there.

Thank you! I'll try to remember to take pictures when someone holds my beer 😆

Ha ha, sounds like a plan!!

Wow, three tunes Tuesday sounds really amazing and interesting. Can I post any song of my choice?

Hello there, the idea is to post Three songs and tag #threetunetuesday. It is a simple as that. A few words about the songs is always good too 👌🎼🤟
