Action Bronson hooks up with director Rik Cordero and Complex TV and drops a hilarious trailer for his Blue Chips 2 project with Party Supplies, set to hit the intranets Friday. Bronsonelli takes it back to May ’95 for this one. 18 years later, we now know why Patrick didn’t dunk that.
Common is listenable here. Illa J and Frank Nitt don’t disturb or are harmless. Dezi Paige really steals the show. She’s finessing those strings with a half-staccato, half-grooving yodel. Lovely addition to a vanilla cream song otherwise.

Is there anything that the cast alumni from “The Wire” can’t do? First, they appear in the indie comedy smash Newlyweeds (check your local theaters for info). Then, cast stand-out Tristan Wilds a.k.a. Mack Wilds has a hit with “Own It” trotting all over the charts.
