The first thing that jumps out about “The Symbol” by Action Bronson is the old-school rock beat. Electric guitars, groovy bass, and relaxed drums combine to form a sound that is reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix. The man is a native of New York, and the listener can tell. “The Symbol” is a great example of how hip-hop is, and always will be, local. The MC has a classic east coast delivery that is easy-going yet powerful.
