A Beastie Boys story is on the way
Hip Hop groups such as A Tribe Called Quest and the Wu Tang Clan have had documentaries on them, so it is only fitting that the Beastie Boys have a documentary about them as well.
Famed director and frequent collaborator Spike Jonze has directed the Beastie Boys documentary titled ‘Beastie Boys Story.” Spike Jonze just released the first trailer of the Beastie Boys Story and it begins with one of the most recognizable intro in Hip Hop “Now here’s a little story that I’ve got to tell/ About three bad brothers that you know so well,” the Beastie Boys rap to open the trailer, fittingly reciting lines from “Paul Revere.”
The documentary features remaining band members Ad-Rock and Mike D discussing their friendship over the years and their career in Hip Hop. Beastie Boys lost their third member Adam Yauch aka MCA to cancer in 2012, which in that same year they were inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. The three New York natives cemented their place in Hip Hop with their classic and critically acclaimed 1986 album Licensed to Ill. They have released eight studio albums and sold over 50 million records worldwide.
The Beastie Boys Story will be available on Apple+TV on April 24th Watch the Beastie Boys Story trailer below
