#BeastieBoy’s first LP, #LicensedtoIll topped the charts this week in 1987. Recorded with producer #RickRubin when the New York rap trio were barely out of high school, it remains a revolutionary combination of hip-hop beats, metal riffs and some of the most exuberant, unapologetic smart-aleck rhymes ever made.
