Action Bronson – Cocodrillo Turbo (Album Review)

Action Bronson continues his string of eccentric releases with “Cocodrillo Turbo.”

TOP 5

 

Honorable Mention. Zambezi

The way Action Bronson starts his verse on “Zambezi” is flames.

Let’s be real, the beat that powers “Zambezi” is ass. That s**t literally sounds like it smells. The good news is this: Action Bronson and featured guest Roc Marciano put up fantastic verses in the song. Their wordplay, their superhero bars, and their tricky flows definitely make up for the funky-ass beat.

 

 

5. Ninety One

Action Bronson opens up “Ninety One” with this line: “They say Bronson disappeared like the aids on Magic Johnson’s d*ck.” My dude, what?

No, this is not a top 5 song because of the line up top; it’s a top 5 song because it has a Kanye-Esque beat that I absolutely love and flows by Bronson that I think are great. If the song didn’t sound so incomplete, it would be much higher on this list.

 

 

4. Jaguar

There are a lot of amazing beats on this album; the simplistic/soulful one that powers “Jaguar” actually ended up being one of my favorite.

I’m not going to lie, I didn’t love Action’s raps on this song (I just feel like he didn’t understand the assignment). With that being said, his charged-up voice mixed with the soulful beat just felt magical, to me. I like magic 🙂

3. Subzero

Yes, Action Bronson is a cold muthaf**ka in “Subzero.”

The beat that powers “Subzero” is on some sly/afro-jazz/Spy Hunter s**t. Somehow, someway, Action Bronson keeps up with the beat’s frantic pace. As for lyrically, he does a good job of coming across as a woman-slaying/bear-wrestling mogul that probably draws kick-ass cartoons on notepads during business meetings.

 

 

2. Turkish

Is anyone else salivating at the idea of Action Bronson joining Griselda after listening to “Turkish?”

“Turkish” is f**king mean! I’m talking meaner than an uber eats driver that just found out that you only gave them a one-dollar tip. Not only does the song feature a beat that is on some cold-ass Griselda s**t, but the verses that you get from both Action and featured guest Meyhem Lauren is on some dark mafia s**t. If Action continues to rap over beats like this, I would be ecstatic.

 

 

1. Tongpo

Action Bronson and Conway The Machine sound grandiose in the wild “Tongpo.”

The beat that powers “Tongpo” is on some 1970s Jumanji/I just smoked on some hippie weed s**t. Over the beat, Action Bronson spits rebellious bars that center around T-Pain G-mixes, 911 turbos, blowjobs, and memorable ass-whippings. As for featured guest Conway The Machine, he spits bars that highlight his come-up and willingness to climb up chimneys. Overall, this is a track with three wonderful sounds that shouldn’t be mixed together at all.

This muthaf**ka Action Bronson is random as s**t! I really can’t take it anymore, bruh.

Action Bronson is one of my favorite listens in hip-hop today. To me, he knows how to entertain by toying with highly-unique beats, cartoonish deliveries, and absolutely comical/arbitrary lyrics. While listening to Cocodrillo Turbo, you will stumble upon beats that sound like some s**t you would hear in f-list detective movies and verses that sound like they were put together by a 13-year-old with a helluva imagination. At the same time, artists such as Roc Marciano, Conway The Machine, and Meyhem Lauren provide the album with grungy vibes that bring it down to earth a little. All in all, this fun project literally made me appreciate the true meaning of artistry all over again.
