“Mike D grabbed the money, MCA snatched the gold… I grabbed two girlies and a beer that’s cold”.
If you are like me, adolescence during the 80′s, skated on the newest Powell Peralta (Lance Mountain for me) and jammed to the greatest tunes i.e. Black Flag, Rancid, Dead Kennedys, Run DMC, N.W.A. and the list goes on…
There is another band that not only helped rappers during the embryo stages, but paved the way for mainstreaming rap, The Beastie Boys. I honestly can rap along to all of there songs. Whether it is off of License To Ill or the last album produced Hot Sauce Committee Part Two.
I do not want to say it is the end of era that Adam Yauch died, instead I want to say we “holy shit… we had almost three decades of music”. That is incredible. And that quote is the best thing I could offer Mike D, Ad Rock or MCA if I could speak to them.
The Beastie boys have raised three generations of kids. Thanks Boys!
