Action Bronson Is Tired of the Ghostface Killah Comparisons [VIDEO]
Ever since Action Bronson made his mark in the rap game, he’s been constantly compared to Ghostface Killah in terms of cadence and rhyme flow. The Queens, N.Y. rhymer recently appeared on ESPN’s SportsNation and had the internet buzzing that he may have dissed Ghostface.
When SportsNation host Marcellus Wiley asked Bronson the question, “Has it helped you or hurt your career [when people say] you sound like Ghostface?” the “Baby Blue” rapper responded with a complimentary answer of sorts.
“I think it’s indifferent at this point. People are going to make comparisons regardless... and I’m just glad it’s one of the greats,” he said.
Then when SportsNation co-host Max Kellerman jumped in and said he was a huge Ghostface fan, Bronson added, “[Ghostface] isn’t rapping like this no more.”
Of course, Bronsolino’s comment ignited the Twitter trolls, which the consensus being that he was dissing Ghostdini.
On Saturday (July 11), Bronson went on Twitter to quiet the rumors that he was disrespecting Ghostface. In a series of tweets, which has since been deleted, Mr. Wonderful denied that he was throwing the legendary Wu-Tang rhymer under the bus. Lucky for us, music blog Ambrosia for Heads saved his tweets.
"GHOSTFACE IS AN IDOL TO ME. IN NO WAY DID I MEAN HIM DISRESPECT AT ALL IN ANY WAY. TO SAY I WASNT INFLUENCED BY HIM AND WU WOULD B A LIE," he wrote in all caps. "WITH THAT BEING SAID MEDIA AND JOURNALIST NEED TO STOP ASKING THE SAME QUESTIONS OVER AND OVER WE GET IT, ITS POOR JOURNALISM."
"HE IS A LEGENDARY UNF---WITABLE ARTIST AND IM JUST GETTING STARTED. SO IF U COMPARE ME TO ONE OF THE GREATEST TO EVER DO IT, THANKS," he added. "MEDIA TRY TO MAKE CONFLICT AND IM WELL SEASONED, NOT MY FINEST HOUR ILL ADMIT."
We have to agree with Bronson. The Ghostface comparison question is an old topic that has long run its course. However, the "Easy Rider" rapper was on SportsNation and they tend to ask rather mundane questions outside of sports. We're just saying.
