Action Bronson has spent the last two years moving from rapper to full-fledged celebrity. Since his last album, 2015's Mr. Wonderful, the Queens rapper has starred in not one but two TV series. There's the food travel show Fuck, That's Delicious, which finds Young A.B. and his pals the Alchemist, Big Body Bes, and Meyhem Lauren eating their way around the world. Then there's Traveling the Stars: Action Bronson and Friends Watch Ancient Aliens, which is a wacky sitcom where Action adopts the most adorable... no, actually, it's exactly what the title says: the rapper and his friends watch the cult TV show Ancient Aliens, get high, and talk smack.

But now Action is back to where it all starting: rapping. His latest album Blue Chips 7000 (out Friday) features 13 songs of outrageous boasts, crazy imagery, and bizarre comparisons. Complex sat down with Bronson to talk about the album, his new life as a TV star, the ’86 Mets, and a whole lot more.
