An Oral History of The Beastie Boys

Interviews, The Good Old Days

I’m still heartbroken about the passing of MCA. So sad. I idolized The Beastie Boys as a kid, that’s the best way to put it. They were the crazy Jewish rappers that gave me the license to get ill myself. I look forward to putting my kids on to their music as they get older. For now, I want to share with Westcheddar readers an oral history of The Beastie Boys that Spin Magazine posted a few days ago (originally published in 1998). I actually own the book that I believe contains this same text, which I guess is now out of print. It’s a cool interview with them, where they tell stories about their career up until ’98…
