He's busting mad rhymes with an 80% success rate in heaven now*.

I remember walking through New York on a stag do (aka Bachelor Party I think, for you Americans) about 10 years ago and ad-libbing "Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten, Likes to frighten kids with a hat that he shat in...." to bemused onlookers.

/I was very, very drunk....and awfully British. Caused some confusion, I can tell you
//well OK, not much confusion, but I was very drunk

While I agree that Paul's Boutique remains one of the very greatest hip hop albums of all time, I feel that the Dust Brothers deserve a big shout-out for casically compiling 90+% of the music behind the rhymes on that masterpiece. I think it was a combination of Paul's Boutique and Fear of a Black Planet that finally brought on the idea of licensing samples, since each of those two recordings have dozens and dozens of them.

RIP MCA, big ups to the Dust Brothers.

I saw The Beastie Boys perform for about 30 people on 110th floor of the World Trade Center. No joke.

It was 1998 and my friends and I went to Windows On The World at WTC. It was a Tuesday night and was getting kind of quiet around 2am. Most people were going home. Three guys got up, with a dj in back, on the stage. Holy crap. The Beastie Boys. They did a short set for no reason other than to amuse themselves and entertain a couple of friends they were there with. And the last song in the set was Don't Sleep Till Brooklyn. Behind them was the East River and Brooklyn. I'm not sure if it gets more New York, or Brooklyn, than that.

/Great memory
//Rest in peace Adam

Selfishly, I am saddened by the fact I will never see him perform live with Adam and Mike.

My condolences to his family and friends.

MCA recently became a vegan at the recommendation of his Tibetan doctors.

well there's your problem.

queezyweezel: Alright. Those guys were all about a good time, and making sure everyone else had one too. Lets get this thread rolling by telling your favorite Beastie Boys memory.

My favorite was getting hammered and doing karaoke to Paul Revere with my two best friends at a party back in high school. We had the place rolling.




Saw them at The Ritz in NYC in 88 (?) with Bad Brains and Murphy's Law. Got hit in the head by a full unopened can of PBR that MCA threw from the stage.My 2 friends and I used to walk home from school do every song by them in 8th or 9th grade. I was MCA.


I have a serious sad...
 
2012-05-04 05:06:08 PM  
MCA finally got his license to ill.


So what'chu, what'chu, what'chu want? Chemotherapy apparently.
 
2012-05-04 05:09:44 PM  
He will be sorely missed. Paul's Boutique is legendary, way before it's time. The In Sounds from Way out is my favorite "have a beer and chill" album, ever.
 
2012-05-04 05:09:52 PM  
They'll be mourning in Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, and Staten...From the Battery to the top of Manhattan.

2012-05-04 05:17:54 PM  

Tom_Slick: cool


For me, as a Jew, I loved them in part because they were Jewish and cool. Up until then, Jews could be smart, funny, and/or successful, but there were no cool Jews before Ad-Rock, MCA, and Mike D.

God damn it. That sucks. Also if you don't like Beastie Boys you suck.

Paul's Boutique, got trashed for liking it off the bat.

my 72 Nova and Pauls Boutique..... fun times

The best in men's clothing
Call Paul's Boutique and ask for Janice and the number is (718) 498-1043
That's Paul's Boutique and they're in Brooklyn

This is basically an admission that your taste in music sucks.

It's an admission I don't listen to worthless trash. Sucks to be you, fur sure.

You know how I know you are gay? Because you listen to Coldplay.


DrippinBalls listens to Coldplay? GTFO now!

LOL wow. I'm a college grad, never was in a frat, never really go to bars/pubs, have a tech job, like jazz, classical, dub, thrash metal, other random incongruous genres, play several instruments, music lover in general above all else. Do you know how many nerdy 20-, 30-, and 40-somethings I know that like Beastie Boys? I don't think Beastie Boys are the hollow mainstream success you think they are. Beasite Boys != Backstreet Boys Congratulations on being a dumbass dude. By the way what music is so great to you that you come in RIP threads trolling?

LOL. That just proves you have no farking idea what you're talking about. They were the first white guys to actually be taken seriously in hip hop. I can't think of a group with a more diverse group of fans. They appealed to people from the streets as well as the kids from suburbia. You're one of those douches who hates shiat they don't even have a frame of reference in.

And a hell of a diverse band in general. They didn't invent rap, but they were the Beatles of an entire genre. Rap, hip-hop, and all its derivitaves would be FAR different if they never came along.

2012-05-04 06:15:32 PM  
the only frame of reference i need is being physically nauseated by the sound of Mike D(?)'s voice. Yeah, Fight for Your Right was cool...but I was ten. Brass Monkey, Paul Revere, etc., etc. Sorry I can't get over that piercing voice. I guess i'm not hip enough for your parties, lol. Doesn't change the fact they sound like shiat.

And don't forget, in 1986, white music listeners were NOT into rap. Rock was for whites, rap was for blacks. I was 10 at the time, going to a school that was 50% black/50% white.

No two ways about it... The Beastie Boys (and RUN-DMC to an extent) changed all that.

That's pretty farking monumental. Like Elvis and Beatles monumental.

Unless you're still stuck with the attitude of "all rap sucks because its a bunch of black people talking over sampled music". If that's the case, I can't help ya.

Yeah, I figured. You realize that song is a parody of the very thing it became- a frat party anthem. Which the Beastie Boys disavowed. And never played live again, I believe.

And if you seriously can't rock out to "Sabotage"... then go back to your collection of Ray Conniff LPs.
