There's a reason why we named Action Bronson our favorite Jewish rapper alive, well, several reasons really.

But what stands out the most is his ability to stand out, his idiosyncrasies, affection for gourmet foodstuff, fondness for irregular production, and of course, his ferociousness on the mic.

He's also, really, just a lovable, stand-up guy, who doesn't take himself too seriously, and knows just how to have a good time, which, with Kanye West and Azealia Banks running around lecturing everybody, is very refreshing in hip hop.

Bronson recently demonstrated just how lovable he is during the SXSW music festival in Austin, where he took a busload of journalists on a tour while they heard his new album, Mr. Wonderful, before he proceeded to feed them poutines he made himself.

Today, with the hype machine on Bronson in full swing, he's made the record available for streaming, which starts off with a Billy Joel sample that the Piano Man approved himself.

Check it out below, via Spotify.

Bronson's also released a new music video for his Chance the Rapper-featuring "Baby Blue" which plays tribute to Eddie Murphy's Coming to America, finding Bronson playing the role of an Albanian king looking for his wife.
