Action Bronson Quotes
"Yeah, I mean at the end of the day, its 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."
