This one hits pretty close to home. Some of my best memories of high school come with listening to the Beastie Boys. When I got my Jeep the first song I jammed out to was Intergalactic. Even in the NBA video games the Beastie Boys were well represented. One game enabled you to even play as the three white rappers.

 

MCA in this picture is playing the role of the referee. The boys often played some crazy dress up, and being New Yorkers of course basketball was a theme as well. I actually caught MCA at a Knicks game a couple of years ago. So with that, I say rest in peace to one of my long time favorites, MCA.
