Beastie Boys mini movie & new album!
First off, Y-Love’s new record, “See Me”, produced by Diwon as now available to preview and pre-order from iTunes, here! Second, The Beastie Boys made a mini movie that stars every famous person in the world (watch it to the left), the mini movie was produced as a way to promote their 8th studio album! The record, “Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 1”, was intended to be the eighth studio album and was was originally planned for release in September 09, but was delayed after band member Adam “MCA” Yauch was diagnosed with cancer. They releases the single “Too Many Rappers”, featuring Nas, which peaked at #93 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. In what can only be described as a bizarre coincidence, following an exhaustive re-sequence marathon, BEASTIE BOYS have verified that their new Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 will be comprised of the same 16 tracks originally slated for inclusion on Hot Sauce Committee Part 1. The record (part 2 that is) hit stores today!
The tracks originally recorded for Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 (which now are actually back on Part 1) have now apparently been bumped to make room for the former Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 material. Wait, what?
Let’s let MCA explain it, “I know it’s weird and confusing, but at least we can say unequivocally that Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 is coming out on time, which is more than I can say about Part 1, and really is all that matters in the end. We just kept working and working on various sequences for part 2, and after a year and half of spending days on end in the sequencing room trying out every possible combination, it finally became clear that this was the only way to make it work. Strange but true, the final sequence for Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 works best with all its songs replaced by the 16 tracks we originally had lined up in pretty much the same order we had them in for Hot Sauce Committee Part 1. So we’ve come full circle.”
