Editors’ Notes Ad-Rock, Mike D, and MCA were streetwise smart-alecks who went on to conquer the world. They were crazy enough to push hip-hop to its limits and crafty enough to break through to the big time. Their 1986 album Licensed to Ill mashed classic Def Jam beats with the Beasties' mic-passing lyrical stew to the tune of over nine million copies sold. Their next album, Paul's Boutique, is a high point in the history of sampling, dropping everyone from P-Funk to Johnny Cash into the mix. Not content to let the past define them, the Beastie Boys picked up instruments and reemerged during the alt-rock heyday as dusty-fingered funk fiends who could throw down in the rhyme cypher or the mosh pit. Explore the Beastie Boys' history-making reign as hip-hop rulers and spiritual journeymen.
