Ben Johnson

from Action Bronson – 9-24-11 Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Ben Jonson was a Renaissance poet and playwright who, much like Bronsolini, was renowned for his large size and intricate descriptions, as well as constant presence, of food in his writings. Even if the reference is meant to be a nod to Ben Johnson, a Canadian sprinter, it is actually (possibly through serendipity) much more apt for Bronson to evoke Jonson the writer, given the similarities between the two.
