Remembering Adam Yauch, a.k.a. MCA, of the Beastie Boys
New Music: Meek Mill - "Amen" (Featuring Drake + Jeremih)

New Video: Beastie Boys x LL Cool J Live in London (1986)

 

Beastie Boys

 

In tribute to the late Adam Yauch (aka MCA), London DJ Tim Westwood posted this rare video of the Beastie Boys going berserk onstage at the 1986 Raising Hell Tour featuring Run-DMC, LL Cool J and Whodini.

During the trio's performance of 'Slow and Low," MCA jumped into the audience to crowd surf and falls straight to the ground (I don't think the Londoners were familiar with crowd surfing at the time). No worries, he got up and was able to continue with his performance. And yep, that's a young and scrappy Lyor Cohen jumping into the fray as a couple of dudes were about to fight with MCA.

It was certainly a wild night. Props to Tim Westwood for posting this classic footage.

 

Rest in Power to MCA!
