He announced the release date real late night while taking dabs.

The Queens legend’s 4th studio album is set to drop August 25th, rounding up the summer perfectly with some Bam Bam for the dog days.
Action also released the visuals for a new song “The Chairman’s Intent” and it may indeed be the greatest music video of all time.
You can tell Action was beyond hyped.
THE BEST VIDEO EVER MADE https://t.co/J73r7CLKDX TRUST ME.

Check out the video on YouTube here:
With production from Surf School head Harry Fraud, Action stars in a ’70s-inspired video directed by another Queens dude Rik Cordero, who’s known for his wild, unorthodox, and gritty visuals.
Cordero hinted that this is only the beginning of the Queens connection.
Blue Chips 7000 is now available for pre-order over at Bronson’s website with some pretty extra perks.
There’s multiple different bundles, including a $5,000 option in which you can have dinner with Action himself.
Other options include less extravagant, but still very chill, merch bundles.
As for the details on Blue Chips 7000, which will include single “Let Me Breathe, production will come from Action Bronson collaborators Alchemist, Harry Fraud, and Party Supplies, so Action fans will be getting that vintage sound.
Peep the first single off Blue Chips 7000:
The features include Mayhem Lauren and Big Body Bes, so there will be plenty of fire ad-libs and you already know Big Body will be talking his trademark shit throughout.
Action also announced a little mini-tour on his website so if you’re located in one of the lucky locales, definitely cop your tickets.
It’s good to see Action Bronson back to making his music. I was a little worried now that he’s a big TV star and personality that he might abandon the hip-hop game altogether, but he’s put those worries to bed with today’s announcement.
Blue Chips 7000 will be released via VICE/Atlantic. Go pre-order that right now, cop the $5,000 package if you’re feeling bougie.
