Well Done (Instrumentals)
Released: Nov 2011
Action Bronson is a Queens emcee who sounds like Ghostface Killah; Statik Selektah is a Boston producer known for his work with street rapper Termanology. Together, the two create an album that could have been made during the mid-'90s N.Y. rap renaissance. What Well Done lacks in originality, it makes up for with consistency. Action Bronson packs his lyrics with clever punchlines -- on "White Silk" he claims he's "baking bread just like the French" -- and Statik loops only the choicest cuts, from the ominous guitar downbeat of "Central Bookings" to the DJ Premier-like chops of "Cliff Notes."
