The Wu-Tang emcee says sometimes he thinks Action Bronson Rhymes are his as well
“I thought he was me one day. I’m like when the f— did I do that verse but it was him?”
says the Wu-Tang rhyme-star in a recent VladTV interview. Overall, Ghostface, who has worked with Bronson in the past, is not turning over in his chamber about Bronson’s alleged vocal matching. In fact, Ghostface takes a semi-diplomatic approach to the speculation that dominates hip hop conversations. Is Action Bronson vocal-matching/jacking Ghostface with the intention of selling records and gaining popularity through a cultural misappropriation practice that has been going on forever? An unforgiving cultural appropriation committee with historical research in tact would probably find him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, but Ghostface ponders the question of intent.
Bronson, who is managed by Eminem’s manager Paul Rosenberg, says that people make the comparisons all the time but the Queens bred M.C who is Albanian and Jewish says he really does just happened to sound like the Staten Island MC with an unforgettable tone and delivery.
This is all fine and dandy, but if Action Bronson starts sweeping up awards for a Ghostface-styled sound in the same manner as Iggy has for vocal matching Eve and Da Brat (as observed by Miss Jill Scott) then I’m sure a plethora of the Wu Tang’s killer bees (fans) will start swarming social media with distress.
