Despite the stoned wackiness of this year's Saaab Stories EP, Action Bronson still has yet to out-weird the phenomenal Blue Chips mixtape, a collaboration with producer Party Supplies. In August, Bronson tweeted:
BLUE CHIPS 2 DROPPING THE FIRST DAY IT RAINS IN QUEENS IN NOVEMBER.

Last night in Toronto, he performed two new tracks from the upcoming, weather-dependent mixtape.
Party Supplies' instrumentals on the first Blue Chips were notable for the varied sources from which they sampled, including songs by Dean Martin, Peter Gabriel, and Iron Butterfly, and the new tracks live up to that legacy. Bronson cues the first song by asking his DJ to "play that Tracy Chapman shit," which seems to be a joke until, sure enough, a looped guitar line from "Give Me One Reason" blares out of the speakers, serving as the only accompaniment to Bronson's punchline-filled verse.
The Champs' classic "Tequila" provides the backbone for next next track, and even prompts Bronson to whip out an impeccable Pee Wee Herman dance. Though the live video's quality isn't the greatest, it's enough to get us severely hyped for Blue Chips 2.
