Action Bronson Saves His “Let Me Breathe” Video With Choreography
With many rappers releasing music videos that serve as nothing more than carbon copies of each other, it's refreshing to get a visual that branches out from the expected motifs. Earlier this week we got Tyler, The Creator's wild video for "Who Dat Boy" featuring A$AP Rocky and today we get the quirky video for Action Bronson's "Let Me Breathe."
Earlier this month, Bronson stopped by Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show to talk about his upcoming project Blue Chips 7000. Besides announcing a new cookbook and revealing that Rick Ross will be featured on a track off Blue Chips 7000, he also had a new song ready: "Let Me Breathe." While the production from Harry Fraud is playful and would be great for a silly music video, we never expected what director James Larese had in store.
For the video, you follow Action around set as he tries to salvage a video shoot that didn't go according to plan. Even a monster truck, throwing a man through a wall and a super tall model couldn't save the day. Luckily, Action takes matters into his own hands and choreographs some dance moves for some men who are cast. One of them describes Action's dance prowess by saying he gets "into the movement of a groove, in fact."
Using a football metaphor, Action seems pleased with the outcome due to his intervention: "You read something in the defense and you fuckin' call the run play instead of the pass. And he takes it fuckin' 43 yards up the middle for a touchdown. That's kinda what we did."
It's interesting to note that Action may be alluding to a new TV show that he'll be pitching to feature his friends more than himself: "I got two shows, I'm about to pitch another/Throw an alley-oop for my brothers."
According to Action, Blue Chips 7000 will be the final installment of the project series.
