EDITORS’ NOTES

A big part of Action Bronson’s appeal comes from his relishable food references, typically delivered atop one another like layers of an oversized bodega sandwich born of his free-associating Queens-bred mindset. With a title instantly recognizable to any New Yorker who’s ever tasted the anti-hangover saving grace of one of the city’s ubiquitous halal carts, Lamb Over Rice makes for another tasty snack from the red-bearded rapper. Here, he teams exclusively with The Alchemist, the longtime cohort and legendary production pal who worked with him on 2012’s beloved Rare Chandeliers mixtape. Composed of new material and vintage loosies, the criminally short, wonderfully varied project gratifies from end to end, with the cinematic yet minimalist “Accoutrements” sharing space with the ambling lounge jazz of “Dmtri.”
