juxtapoz-beastie-boys

It’s crazy to think it’s been over a year since MCA passed away. In remembrance of the late Beastie Boy, the art and culture magazine, Juxtapoz, has dedicated their latest issue to the group and Adam Yauch in particular. In it you’ll find interviews with each of the artists that contributed to the group’s album’s pieces of art, a talk with Ad-Rock about how each cover was selected, and even some outtakes you’ve probably never seen before. For any fan of the Beastie Boys, there are far worse ways to spend six bucks.
