MCA is dead. Goats have not been paid. And I didn’t hear nearly enough Beastie Boys when I was out last night. I can only even begin to help remedy one of these things. The Beastie Boys are legends of hip-hops. Giants of the B Boy generation who kept turning out landmarks for hip-hop and pop culture throughout their careers. Every radio station, every DJ, every house party should be bumping their sh*t this week. Period. If you go somewhere and you don’t hear it, make a big deal about it.
