Beastie Boys in studio for new album
The Beastie Boys are back in the back in the studio to follow up their Grammy winning instrumental album The Mix Up. The good news: the Beasties are rapping on this album. The bad news: it’s not coming out anytime soon (MCA says don’t expect it this year). But in between laying down new tracks, the B-Boys are hitting two festivals, Langerado in Florida (tonight!) and MX Beat Soundfest in Mexico City.
In the meantime, fans will have to hope that the boys from Brooklyn will release some of the collaborations from the likes of M.I.A. and Snoop Dogg. But that won’t be the only view of the Beastie Boys you’ll get all year, as MCA’s film company, Oscilloscope Pictures, aims to put out the basketball documentary Gunnin’ for That #1 Spot this summer.
