Because of their brief expiration date, there are only two culinary MCs extant: Bizarre and Action Bronson. Bizarre is quick-witted but no one wants to hear an entire Bizarre album, no matter how clever. Bronson, on the other hand, is an MC with a toolkit to die for: a nimble flow, a vast vocabulary, razor-sharp metaphors delivered with the precision of a swordsman. The former gourmet chef has been busy grilling fire-flame treats in the lab lately. In 2011, he generated considerable buzz after appearing on Wu-Tang's Legendary Weapons. The same year, he released his own longplayer, Dr. Lecter, before joining forces with producer Statik Selektah on the well-received Well-Done. Can you smell what Bam Bam Bronson is cooking in 2012?
