Action Bronson once again steps into view, standing tall with Flushing, Queens on his back. “Consensual Rape” is a slideshow set on double time, breathlessly narrated snatches of vivid imagery. Never pausing for a hook, he confidently tosses out snapshots over the knocking drums and echoing horns cued up by Tommy Mas. After telling his foes to look to ostrich meat for self-help tips and pulling a Desmond Howard Heisman pose, Bronson leaves the listener by saying he’s “trying to live American Dreams, Dusty Rhodes.” And indeed, the man emulates the wrestling legend. He’s got the Dream’s trademark bravado – he’s “destined to shine” – and also conducts himself like an underdog, fighting to earn the respect of any and all would-be naysayers.
Dr. Lecter, Bronson’s latest release, is available on iTunes now.
