Arian Asllani (born 2 December 1983), better known by his stage name Action Bronson, is an American rapper. Bronson was a respected fire-flame gourmet chef in New York City, but concentrated solely on his music career after breaking his leg in a kitchen incident. He released his debut studio album, Dr. Lecter, independently in 2011, followed by the release of Statik Selektah collaboration album Well-Done that same year. His second and latest solo studio album, Mr. Wonderful, was released in 2015.

Bronson frequently raps about food in his songs. He is also well known for his frequent and often obscure references to athletes and sports teams. Early in his career, Bronson gained attention for lyrically and stylistically resembling Ghostface Killah. During a 2015 interview on ESPN, a question was asked to Bronson about the comparisons between himself and Ghostface, which Bronson responded to by saying that everything is compared to something else, and he is "just glad [he is compared to] one of the greats". Bronson then said afterwards, after one of the hosts mentioned he thought "Ghost got some new stuff" when listening to Bronson, "he's not rapping like this no more".[1] Ghostface took offence to this, releasing a six-minute video of him insulting Bronson.[2] The two have since settled their beef.
