Playing tracks by
Beastie Boys, The Beastie Boys and Commodores.
On May 4th 2012, the Hip Hop community lost a Hip Hop icon. Adam "MCA" Yauch (MC, musician, director, human rights activist) was one third of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, pioneering Hip Hop group the Beastie Boys. The Beastie Boys paved the way for alot of Hip Hop artists through their unique sample-based production. They were also students of Hip Hop through their 1st hand approach to the old school way of MCing which they stayed true to throughout their entire career.
This show is filled with Beastie Boys classics spanning for over 25 years. The Beastie Boys' greatness is forever etched into the stone of Hip Hop. And with this show I hope to give a small example of how great they truly are.
My condolences to Adam Yauch's family and friends. Thank you, Mr. Yauch, for all that you've done for Hip Hop. You will be missed but your music is eternal.
