Rap fans eating up what Action Bronson’s serving

Thanksgiving is a holiday that one would imagine brings out the best in Action Bronson. Aside from having a notable side job as a rapper (more on that later), he’s a trained professional chef who loves an audience; see his YouTube show “Action in the Kitchen” for ample evidence. His rhymes themselves are served with enough food references and cooking tips to cobble together a recipe book from his lyric sheets; for that, there’s songs like “Jerk Chicken” and “Tapas.”

But in speaking on the phone from a tour stop in Austin, Texas, the day before Thanksgiving, he’s far away from the Queens, N.Y., kitchen where someone else will prepare the next day’s meal, which leaves him with plenty of time to talk about other things.
