The All Points West crowd got a special treat last night. Jay-Z came out and performed a cover of the trio's "No Sleep Till Brooklyn" as a tribute to the Boys not being able to be at the festival because of MCA's cancer diagnosis. He then transitioned into one of his new songs, "Brooklyn We Go Hard". Very classy! (via YANP)
There's still no word on who will be replacing the B-Boys at Austin City Limits. Any ideas?
In May, we got to hear two new tracks from the Beastie Boys, "Lee Majors Comes Again" and "B-Boys in the Cut". Now we get to hear a decent copy of another new song the B-Boys performed at Bonnaroo with Nas. Entitled, "Too Many Rappers", all the songs will appear on the Beastie Boys' new album, The Hot Sauce Committee Part. 1, due out Sept. 15th.
