Photographer Glen E. Friedman, widely known for his work chronicling the intersection between punk rock and hiphop in the 1980s, has posted some beautiful shots of MCA, Ad-Rock, and Mike D from that era: "why A you see H".
You wake up late for school man you don’t wanna go,
You ask your mom “please?” but she still says “NO!”
You miss two classes and no homework
but your teacher preaches class like you’re some kind of jerk
You gotta fight, for your right,
Your pops caught you smokin’ and he said “NO WAY!”
That hypocrite smokes two packs a day!
Man living at home is such a drag
Now your mom threw away your best porno mag (Busted)
You gotta fight
Don’t step outta this house if that’s the clothes you’re gonna wear!
I’ll kick you outta my home if you don’t CUT THAT HAIR!!
Your mom busted in and said “WHAT’S THAT NOISE!?”
Aww, mom you’re just jealous, it’s the Beastie Boys!
Hope no one gets any hot ideas about a touring Adam hologram. BTW the 2012 Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame did a nice tribute.
MC Adam aka MCA will surely be missed. Yauch-why A you see H.
47? Just over middle aged…
Good thing he did a lot with his life, he was apparently middle aged when he was 23.
Anyone not know someone dying or dead from cancer? Everyone I know either has it or is dealing with a family member with it.
I have it on good authority that MCA’s death is being looked into by investigators as a SABOTAGE!!!! /bury him with his mustache
Yet another part of my adolescence bites the dust. :(
