Rolling Stone has posted an interview with Michael 'Mike D' Diamond of the Beastie Boys discussing Adam Yauch's life and his last few weeks. Included in the interview is the fact that Yauch recorded new music with the band last fall.
This past Friday, the music scene as a whole lost a true visionary, activist, and legend in Adam "MCA" Yauch, one of the co-founders of Beastie Boys. I wrote a small afterword on the hip-hop pioneer in my blog, as well as created a playlist of some of my favorite Beastie tracks. This is the place to share your favorite videos, songs, and memories from the genre-defining hip-hop trio.
Beastie Boys' music video for "Make Some Noise" can be seen here. The video is a snippet of their short film, Fight For Your Right Revisited, which airs tonight at midnight (EST) on VH1 before airing uncensored at 3AM (EST) on Comedy Central.
Head to the replies to check out the Beastie Boys artwork, tracklisting and album track "Too Many Rappers" (feat. Nas) from the forthcoming album, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, which will be released on May 3 via Capitol.
