Ghostface Killah Threatens to Kill Action Bronson in YouTube Rant

Action Bronson's music has always garnered a lot of Ghostface Killah comparisons, and rightfully so. Bronson does sound a lot like Ghostface, who once joked after hearing Bronson's voice that he thought it was one of his own verses.

But it appears the jokes are over.

During an appearance on ESPN's SportNation Bronson deflected the common comparison by saying something about how people like to compare everything, "like Pepsi and Coke." But, on the second go around he was a little more firm, saying "[Ghostface Killah is] not rapping like this no more," in reference to his album Mr. Wonderful. He then added that Killah needs to remix a song, or, "needs something."

Ghostface responded with a 6-minute-long YouTube video, where he repeatedly insinuates that he'll have Bronson killed for the remarks. 

In the video, Killah says a phone conversation between the two rappers took place where Bronson confessed that he didn't mean any offense, and was nervous with the camera in his face. According to Killah, Bronson put up a Twitter apology but then deleted it. A two-faced move Killah didn't respect.

"I got shooters," Killah says in the video, while "Be For Real" by Teddy Pendergrass plays in the background. "I know the tour schedule ... Lots of people don't make it through the summer."

Other highlights include Ghostface threatening to set Bronson's beard on fire and saying, "Don't let me hang you from a fucking rope and gut you like a pig, nigga, and leave you out to dry. Because then you're done."

It seems like Ghostface might have jumped a couple levels, but the death threats weren't the most criminal part of the video: the whole thing was filmed vertically. 

Watch it for yourself below:
In the video, Killah explains that he is upset Bronson deleted some tweets, so it looks like he put up another apology.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
