Billboard Compiles Top 10 M.C.A. Rhymes
I’m still bummed he’s gone.
On Friday, the music world lost hip-hop pioneer and Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer Adam Yauch, better known as M.C.A. from the Beastie Boys. Tributes continue to pour in from celebrity tweeters and music publications, but the best one I’ve seen so far has come from Billboard. They put together a list of his 10 greatest rhymes, along with the videos they’re attributed to.
My personal favorite from this list comes from 1986’s “Paul Revere:”
“Now my name is M.C.A. I’ve got a license to kill/ I think you know what time it is it’s time to get ill/ Now what do we have here an outlaw and his beer/ I run this land, you understand I make myself clear.”
