Here it is, the story of the Beastie Boys told by the two surviving members of the group, Ad-Rock & Mike D. The idea for a book was conceived more than a decade ago, and after the passing of MCA in 2012, the grieving friends started sharing their cherished memories, and everything was set in motion. At 592-pages long, the hardcover is panoramic in its telling of the iconic band's journey, from it's hardcore beginnings to becoming one of the biggests names in hip-hop or rather, pop culture. First-hand, funny, & often fascinating accounts of everything from working on hugely successful albums to getting pulled over for an officer who recognized the group, but still went ahead and issued a speeding ticket… In addition to the anecdotes, the book includes rare photos, original illustrations, a graphic novel, mixtape playlists, and even a cookbook by chef Roy Choi, while Amy Poehler, Colson Whitehead, Spike Jonze, Wes Anderson, Luc Sante and more contribute pieces to complete the experience.
