Before his rapping career took off, Action Bronson was an avid graffiti artist. In an interview with Hip Hop DX, Bronson said that, “if it wasn't for graffiti, there wouldn't be any rap [for him].” Bronson is in the Queens-based Smart Crew and continues to do graffiti until now. “I do it all over the place. Give me a can now. I'll do something right now.” He has even left his mark in Melbourne and in South Africa.
