Beast(ie) with that mic (RIP MCA)

We all have our Beastie Boys memories, at least those of us born in the late 70’s, early 80’s. I remember thinking they were somewhat done being relevant when I was in high school, and then they dropped Hello Nasty when I was in the 10th grade. It was more than relevant, it was intrepid, it was bumped in my mini disc player at a time when I was addicted to OutKast and Tupac, it was a pleasure to be reminded that I had listened to hip hop for a while, something to be proud of. Adam Yauch died of cancer today, he was 47. RIP sir, you were a worthy harbinger of all things good.
