In a recent interview with Complex, New York emcee Action Bronson said that his Twitter rant about possibly leaking his own album is what got the label to actually release the album. His new album Blue Chips 7000 was in the waiting when, on Twitter, the rapper went on a rant against major labels telling them to “PUT MY MOTHERFUCKING ALBUM OUT.”
In the interview, however, Bronson said “Everyone called me right away and everything started moving. Motherfuckers started moving their ass. It’s really crazy. Sometimes you gotta do things like that.”
According to HIpHopDX:
Action Bronson had even more harsh words for record labels throughout the interview, saying, “Unless they can help you, they suck. Unless you’re a humongous artist and you’re doing pop songs and hit songs, it really sucks. But for me, all I care about is putting out the project the way I made it.”
He also mentioned that a majority of the wait time was due to sample clearance issues, and that he couldn’t be too mad because most of them (93% according to him) got cleared.
His new album is slated to drop tomorrow August 25.
