    Son was always a friend to Muslims – some of yall recall the MTV Awards where he stood up for us, may Allah bless:

    edition.cnn.com/SHOWBIZ/Music/9809/11/mtv.video.awards.cnn/index.html

    “Several artists injected serious topics into the ceremony at the Universal Amphitheatre, including rock/rap trio the Beastie Boys. As the group accepted a lifetime achievement award, Adam Yauch launched into a tirade about racism in the United States, and condemned Americans for not understanding Muslims.”

  22. JDS of the Cobra Kai Dojo Says:

    Russell Simmons (cofounder, Def Jam Records and Rush Management): I met the Beasties at Danceteria. They were wearing red sweatsuits and stripes, red pumas and do-rags. They were assholes.

    Yauch: Rick started getting tight with Russell. We really formed into a hip-hop group as Russell was starting to manage us. We started playing real shows, opening for Kurtis Blow or the Fat Boys. It was scary at first. One time Russell put us in a limousine and sent us out to the Encore club in Queens. We were definitely the only white people for miles, and we were getting out of, like a stretch limousine. How much more obnoxious and conspicuous could we have possibly been?

    Lol …Respect

    this sucks. RIP MCA.

    I’m a cancer survivor (its gonna be 17 years this june), and when I was going thru chemo, all I’d listen to was Wu, Biggie, old Cube and Beastie Boys.

    fuck cancer.

  41. fli-die Says:

    Happened to see the Beasties a few years back at one of those damn “Fest” but it was 2 DAYS of dirty ass “non blacks” baking in the heat.

    Too many acts to name but Lupe, The Police, The Wu & The Beasties were all on the bill.

    And if you REALLY love this thing of ours, this culture called HIP HOP, then YOU have nothing but respect for THE Beasties.

    Them white boys gave to realiest, truest representation of Hip Hop that I’ve seen in years. 2 turntables & 3 mike action. And the MURDERED everybody (including The Wu) with their all hip hop set.

    Most people have never seen an authentic hip hop set, cause few CAN do it. Other than maybe Tribe, De La etc.

    After 45 mins of rocking with their DJ the set revolved and they did 20 more mins as a band!

    They was nice. And they were authentic HIP HOP.

    Respect to the Double B’s. R.I.P. to MCA! And oh yeah fuck Cancer on behalf of my moms. May she R.I.P. too.

    NO SLEEP TIL HEAVEN.
