So, this was spotted in HipHopDX:
Besides solidifying Action Bronson’s position as a simultaneously charming and crass newcomer within Hip Hop, the first Blue Chips also broke Party Supplies onto the scene. The momentum from two Blue Chips projects carried over, and Nealis confirmed Party Supplies will be logging time with another frequent Action Bronson collaborator.
“We went out to LA with [Bronson] last month—me, him, Alchemist, and Sean recorded an entire EP of material under the name Jericho,” Nealis said. “Jericho may be a project that we drop, that’s really under-the-table, no one knows about that yet. Jericho may just be like a multi-genre, no label EP that may cross genres from Hip Hop to Electro to ‘80s Pop. We may bridge the gap with that actually, because some of the stuff we recorded for that, one of the songs sounds like a late ‘80s Smokey Robinson record and shit. And then, there’s some Surf Rock on there that sounds like the Beach Boys and Bronson’s rhyming on it. Alchemist made the beat. We rented pianos and keyboards. We rented a Wurlitzer, we rented a bass, we rented a few guitars and shit. We recorded a lot of original material that kind of has a very Electro sound and we’re calling it Jericho.
Then, this was spotted in XXL:
Action Bronson quickly debunked swirling hearsay by stating that the project is still in the preliminary stages.
“It’s nothing official. It’s a collective a people—Oh No, Sean [Mahon] who is also in Party Supplies, Tommy Mas. It’s just a collective of people of human beings that make music. Something is gonna come out of it and it’s probably not going to be rap. It’s probably going to be some next level shit. We are in there with all kinds of instruments, fucking frog percussions and shit. Yeah, I’m on the frog percussions! When you hear it, it’s me,” he tells XXL earlier today.
So, is there a secret project or isn’t there? Time will tell.
