Slaves have announced the release date for their second album, 'Take Control," one of whose songs features Mike D of the Beastie Boys.
The shed at Mike D's house in California was broken into, with thousands of dollars in surfing gear stolen.
Mike D promises to play music from across a broad spectrum, while bringing in artists like Slaves – with whom the rapper has recorded recently.
With old-school rhyme schemes, lo-fi punk, a little Latin flavor and a lot of their trademark pop culture snark, Beastie Boys unleashed a mid-'90s masterpiece.
At the height of their powers in 1996, the Beastie Boys surprised everyone and let the funk do all the talking.
Well, now here's a little story we've got to tell about three bad brothers you know so well.
'Licensed to Ill' will tell the story of Mike D, MCA and Ad-Rock’s rise to fame, while incorporating live music and DJs.
Despite the news, a representative of the group said, "There will never be Beastie Boys live performances without Adam Yauch."
Who knows if we'd be able to party as freely as we can today if the Beastie Boys hadn't come along and told us to fight for it?
