Action Bronson Announces He's a Free Agent: "No More Label"

The Queens MC is reportedly following Wale out the door at Atlantic.

Action Bronson took to Twitter early Friday morning to announce that he is no longer signed to Atlantic Records.

"Free Agent. No more label. Independence Day," Bronson tweeted.

Bronson, who signed with Atlantic Records and VICE in 2012, released three projects under the supervision of the Warner Music Group-owned label, including the Harry Fraud-produced Saaab Stories EP (2013), Mr. Wonderful (2015) and Blue Chips 7000 (2017).

Leading up to the release of Blue Chips 7000, Bronson openly criticized the label on social media and in interviews, claiming he wasn't a viewed as a priority and that the label dragged their feet in helping him clear samples.

"Unless you’re a humongous artist and you’re doing pop songs and hit songs, it really sucks," Bronson told Complex last August about being a major label artist.

Bronson is now the second big-name artist to leave Atlantic since January 1, following in the footsteps of fellow veteran MC Wale.

DJBooth has reached out to a label representative at Atlantic to confirm the split. We will update this story if we receive a response.
