    Action Bronson Announces "Mr. Wonderful" World Tour

    Action Bronson gave us hi highly-anticipated debut album last week, so we knew it was only a matter of time before the constantly-touring rapper gave us some new dates to support the project. Today, he's more-than-delivered on the assumption, announcing the first leg of what is promised to be a world tour.

    Samples Of the Week: August 28

    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".  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.

    After getting two big albums, Big Sean's Dark Sky Paradise and Chris Brown & Tyga's Fan Of A Fan: The Album, last week, this week has been all about the singles. Everyone from Ludacris to Juicy J to Wale seemed to drop off a new track, and so this edition of Samples Of The Week focuses on three of the best we've heard recently.

    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.

    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.

    This Monday, Action Bronson dropped his madcap, adventurous debut album Mr. Wonderful. Although it was a little less sample-driven than his prior mixtapes, its live instrumentation was still often based around skeletons of existing songs taken from far-flung genres, as is Bam Bam's habit.  We've already covered "Easy Rider," "Actin Crazy," "Terry" and "Baby Blue" in previous editions of Samples Of The Week, so this time we're putting some of the deeper cuts under the source-material lens. Let us know your favorite tracks in the comments section.
