Action was born and raised in Flushing, Queens. He is of Albanian and Jewish descent. He used to be a respected fire-flame gourmet chef in New York City, but gave up cooking for a rap career and still frequently raps about food in his songs.
He initially gained notoriety lyrically and stylistically resembling to rapper Ghostface Killah (whom he collaborated with, along with friend, and fellow rapper Termanology on a song called "Meteor Hammer" on Wu-Tang Clan's 2011 album Legendary Weapons).
In an interview with HipHopDX, he was asked about how it was to sound like him, and he responded with, "Yeah, I mean at the end of the day, it’s all good because Ghostface Killah is one of the best rappers alive, so if I sound similar to the best rapper alive then that is fine.
To me there is no comparison; he is a legend and I am a newcomer. If I would try and emulate with anyone it would be Kool G Rap, he is the person I look up to the most. I am not upset but at the end of the day I am my own person and no one can take that away from me.
"He released his debut studio album Dr. Lecter in 2011.
