Last night after some good ole’ Internet trolling, Action Bronson announced he is the latest signee to Vice Records, a subsidiary of Warner Bros., making his self-spread rumors of signing to Odd Future member Left Brain for 1.5 million null and void. Following his announcement came a slew of tweets from Bronsalino, some joking about the amount of money he gained from the deal and some proclamations for his fans about his future as am musician. One tweet in particular caught our eyes.
What exactly classifies something as “candy cane bullshit?” Does it have to be lyrically based on candy canes? Or just candy in general is off limits to the subject matter? Are sweet pastries off the menu, and we should expect the savory type instead? Or does it boil down to simply any sugar coated music, glossy enough for MTV and radio? After a few minutes of questioning the meaning of “candy cane bullshit” we came up with a few examples of cavity inducing rap songs we thought Bronson was referring to. You know the drill, son!
