Bronson is the type of cat who rides a Harley into the sunset, with a lit blunt between his lips, a massive strip of smoked salmon around his neck, and his middle finger to the sky. Why? That’s just how he rolls.
Action Bronson Net Worth as of 2017: $4 Million
That boy Bronson is rolling in the dough (whether it’s baked goods or money). He’s a rapper, a former chef, a food aficionado and a certified sex symbol. You already know he’s also living the high life on 4/20. Action is always with the green, whether it’s that paper or the ganja.
But how did Mr. Wonderful become so successful? Let’s take a look at Bronson’s road map to riches…
2008 – 2014
You may know Action Bronson from Viceland’s out-of-this-world foodgasm program F*ck That’s Delicious. But way before he was eating delicious foods on television, Bronson was a fire-flame gourmet chef in the city that never sleeps. He also had his own online cooking show called Action in the Kitchen.
After Bronson broke his leg, he moved onto a career in music. He always liked rapping as a hobby, but focused on transforming that talent into a career while he was recovering from his leg injury.
Action dropped his first dope record Dr. Lecter in 2011. He quickly rose through the ranks of the underground all the way to mainstream hip hop, as he was nominated for two BET Awards: Rookie of the Year (2013) and Best Mixtape for Blue Chips 2 (2014). Bronson was also featured on XXL Magazine’s 2013 Freshman Class of up-and-coming rappers.
2014 – Present
In 2014, Action went back to making videos on his gourmet food-loving ways. In March of that year, he gave the word a taste of F*ck That’s Delicious for the first time via the web. Bronson later released his second studio album Mr. Wonderful on March 23rd, 2015. What more can a man ask for? Amazing food, sick beats, and a bankroll that will keep both your parents proud and secure.
In March 2016, F*ck That’s Delicious turned into a full-fledged TV show on Viceland. It’s the type of show that will make you quiver because the food looks so f*cking good.
As a rapper, Action has often been compared to Ghostface Killah for their similar sound and style. Bronson cites the Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep, Cam’ron, Nas, and UGK, and more, as major influences in his rap career.
How did Action Bronson come up with such a clever rap name? As a kid in Queens, Bronson’s tag name was Action. He’s always enjoyed the 1980s film series Death Wish, starring Charles Bronson (who is also his grandfather’s favorite actor). He combined the two and out came Action Bronson.
