Video: Agallah – T.R.O.P (They Reminisce Over P)

Monday, September 14th, 2015

Sean Price’s friend and frequent collaborator Agallah pays tribute to his fallen comrade on “T.R.O.P. (They Reminisce Over P)”. You can feel the love on this one.

I need one of those tees!

If you’re a casual Price fan or are just becoming familiar with his catalog since his passing, don’t sleep on the Rising To The Top mixtape that him and Agallah put out a while back. It’s dope as hell and there are some crazy under the radar P verses to be found on it.

10 Classic Beastie Boys Television Performances

Monday, June 9th, 2014

The passing of Beasties Boys member MCA in 2012 is still being felt today by his family, friends, and fans, and that pain won’t let up anytime soon. Whether you grew up a hardcore fan like I did listening to the Beastie Boys’ music or not, their contribution as a group to the culture is undeniable, and MCA was the heart and soul of all they gave to us. Every white rapper out here (including myself) owes the Beastie Boys a debt of gratitude for breaking down barriers for them early on. They knew how to make hit records, have fun, and unlike fellow contemporary white hip-hop artists like Vanilla Ice, they never came off corny. They were three dope MCs and musicians who represented New York to the fullest, were never afraid to be themselves, and with every album release, they pushed hip-hop forward. And most especially, they were ill performers, who knew how to put on a great live show.

To honor MCA and his living bandmates Mike D and Ad-Rock, and celebrate this year’s 20th anniversary of their album Ill Communication (which is a personal Ipcus favorite), I put together a collection of 10 Classic Beastie Boys Television Performances for our latest Video Vault. These hand-picked clips span the first 20 years of their career dating back to their infant stages as a punk band in 1984, and showcase the Beasties’ incredible on-stage chemistry, from the rhymes to the instrumental riffs to the humor. Click the link below to read/watch. This is dedicated to MCA, Rest In Peace.
