Early life 
Asllani's parents are Albanian immigrants. Before entering the rap scene he was a respected fire-flame gourmet chef in New York City, and frequently raps about food in his songs. He hosted his own online cooking show entitled "Action in the Kitchen". He has gained fame for lyrically and stylistically resembling rapper Ghostface Killah (with whom he collaborated, along with friend and fellow rapper Termanology, on a song called "Meteor Hammer" from the 2011 compilation album Legendary Weapons). In an interview with HipHopDX, he was asked about how it was to sound like him, and he responded with,
"Yeah, I mean at the end of the day, it’s all good because Ghostface Killah is one of the best rappers alive, so if I sound similar to the best rapper alive then that is fine. To me there is no comparison; he is a legend and I am a newcomer. If I would try and emulate with anyone it would be Kool G Rap, he is the person I look up to the most. I am not upset but at the end of the day I am my own person and no one can take that away from me."
2011: Dr. Lecter & Well Done 
He released his debut studio album Dr. Lecter in 2011, which is available in digital download and also in CD-R on his official website. Action Bronson is an atheist, which he revealed in the songs "Love Letter" and "Not Enough Words" (lyrics: "I believe in science, she believe in Jesus" and "ask to swear to God, but in that I don't believe though"), from Action Bronson's collaboration album with Statik Selektah, Well Done. He was recently featured twice on Domo Genesis's & The Alchemist's debut collaboration album No Idols on tracks "Elimination Chamber (also featuring Earl Sweatshirt & Vince Staples) & "Daily News" (also featuring SpaceGhostPurrp & Earl).
2012-present: Rare Chandeliers & major label debut album 
On August 12, 2012, Action Bronson announced via Twitter that he signed a recording contract with Warner Bros. Records via media company, VICE (also home to Snoop Lion). Action also announced that he would work exclusively with NUE Agency for concert bookings. The responsible is Paul Rosenberg who became Bronson's manager and also signed him to his management firm Goliath Artists before getting him signed to both Vice and Warner Bros.
In 2012, he did a collaboration album with The Alchemist, named Rare Chandeliers. In January it was announced that Bronson would be performing at the 2013 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. On March 26, 2013 it was announced that Bronson would be a part of XXL Magazine's 2013 Freshman Class. In May 2013 he announced that he was moved to Atlantic Records and his album Saab Stories with Harry Fraud would be coming soon. On May 14, 2013 he released "Strictly 4 My Jeeps" as the first single from his major label debut album. The music video was filmed in Manhattan during mid May 2013 along with Riff Raff.
