Each week I will be posting a Beastie Boys video. I started to do this daily on my friend Quin Stevenson‘s wall. He needs to be educated on the finer things in life. Too often is he trying to impress me by showing me Ke$ha vids. This needs to stop and what better way to do that than by flooding his life with Beastie Boys music.
Beasties don’t just honor anyone.
0:01 – Beasties start out by rappin “Here We Go” by Run DMC
0:10 – I haven’t seen any live rap/hip-hop performances, but I have watched a lot on YouTube and I have to say that the Beastie Boys are some of the best.
0:15 – Shot of the crowd. Looks like we got some celebs in there. We can at least see D.M.C (Darryl McDaniels). All of them head bobbin to the simple, yet sick beat.
1:18 – What ever happened to hip-hop groups?
1:32 – Dude looks like Rick James. “Cocaine is a helluva drug”
1:42 – Chicks with cocktail dresses in the crowd? Super lame. Get some real fans in there, please.
2:06 – Flava flav spotting. I don’t see Chuck D though. Does Flav wear a clock absolutely everywhere? Or just in public? I wonder how many he owns.
2:42 – Mix Master Mike takes a break and lets Doug E. Fresh take over. I get goosebumps every time I watch this. Ladies, don’t watch right after shaving.
2:56 – So happy
3:11 – Flava Flav seems to be wearing sweats that are 18 times too big for him.
3:30 – We love you Jay.
