The Beastie Boys are legends. No one can take that away from them. But just as Tom Watson’s duffed putt on the 72nd hole of the British Open this weekend proved, age eventually catches up with everyone. This is apparently an unmastered version of the track they debuted at Bonnaroo with Nas, but that doesn’t really explain why no one on it raps to the beat. Nas goes at fake drug dealer rappers, and yet his best recent verse was on Rick Ross’ “Usual Suspects.” The Beasties hate on holograms and writers—two things we love with the deepness of the ocean, especially holograms that look like writers that look like us so we can spend the day at the beach while the holograms blog about the Beastie Boys.

In heavier news, Adam Yauch aka MCA, alongside Ad Rock, announced he has a treatable form of throat cancer today and that future Beastie Boys’ press and touring for their new album Hot Sauce Committee Pt 3 is cancelled for the time being.
