    Action Bronson Shares The Artwork For "Mr. Wonderful"
    Feb 12, 2015 at 10:15am
    After tweeting the tracklist for his highly anticipated Mr. Wonderful, Action Bronson just got on Instagram to share the artwork for the project. The CD cover shows a shirtless Bronson perched atop some golden steps, addressing a crowd we can't see, with "Sincerely, Mr. Wonderful" signed in cursive above him. It's designed by FRKO, who did the totally crazy cover art (which shows Bronson riding a laser-headed, missile-firing shark through space) for "Actin Crazy," the second single off Mr. Wonderful.

    After a few paltry weeks, we finally have a chart we can be proud of. Good on you, HNHH fam. Our Top 100 chart contained a number of notable tracks this week. These are songs that generated a lot of interest, whether it be through comments or views, and still deserve a second look or a deeper consideration.

    After devoting a few of the most recent editions of "Samples Of The Week" to break down sample-heavy albums by J. Cole, Lupe Fiasco. Joey Bada$$ and Fabolous, we return to the usual format this week. That means it's back to covering three big tracks that dropped this week, and this time around, they're taken from all corners of the hip-hop spectrum. First, Action Bronson paired up with The Alchemist for a dusty gem, then Cannibal Ox returned with DOOM in tow for one of their space-age anthems, and the last track on the list... well, you know what the biggest song of the week was.

     Nothing too new is going on in the game this past week. In other words, hip-hop is just going right now. And that's not bad: Vince Staples is alive and still hating on Chris Paul, Jay Z still knows how to tweet, Meek Mill is still free and he's #woke. Common and John Legend won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song ("Glory" from Selma), but other than that, things have been a 40 degree day. The tweets are still fire though.

    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".

    For some, a New Year's Day is just another day — except a little newer. That's the impression you'd get from a quick glance at rap Twitter. Old grievances carried on to 2015. But that's OK, because there are only three things that matter: new Migos, new Kanye West and Plain Pat. Check out the details on 140 Bars Or Less.

    Both Azealia Banks and Action Bronson are known to be rather candid and outspoken when it comes to Twitter, and they just so happened to butt heads today. Following Banks' HOT 97 interview, where she spoke her mind about white appropriation of black culture, it seems that a fan of hers brought Bronson's name into the conversation.

    Action Bronson has been so prolific over the last few years, it's easy to forget that he hasn't actually put out a proper full length since signing with Vice/Atlantic. Mr. Wonderful will fill that spot, and while the New York rapper has been tossing around the title for some time, he finally gave us some details on the release last week.

    Breaking news: The NFL is corrupt! Because rappers wanting to be athletes and vice versa is sort of a running motif, a few have weighed in with their thoughts about the Ray Rice/NFL cover-up situation. Some made more sense than others.

Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".  This week, we cover a wacky batch of samples from Action Bronson, Yelawolf and Travi$ Scott. This is the weirdest edition of Samples Of The Week yet.
