THROWBACK THURSDAY: BEASTIE BOYS

ASAP ENTERTAINMENT HIP HOP HONORS

(Left to Right) Michael “Mike D” Diamond, Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz  and Adam “MCA” Yauch formed this iconic Hip-Hop/Punk Rock group in 1981 at Yauch’s 17th birthday party. Ad-Rock was actually added to the group later on in 1983 replacing an old member of the group. New York is their home, New York is the city where it all started for these 3 guys.

When their first EP, Cooky Puss, was released it quickly became a hit in New York underground dance clubs and night clubs upon its delivery. It was first their first piece of work that fused together the underground rap phenomenon and the use of samples of prank calls.

Due to their success with Cooky Puss they hired a  college student as their DJ (Rick Rubin) and started performing at venues all over the New York scene. Rubin produced their next records under Def Jam and Capitol Records, the rest was history in the making as they continued to record and tour around the world. Their success led to 3 Grammy awards, MTV video music awards, and also features in films. Not only did they inspire the hip-hop community with their music they also were  activist by added their voice to the growing protest against the U.S. war on Iraq in 2003.

In April 2012, the Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The following month, MCA died of cancer at the age of 47. In Brooklyn there is a children’s playground renamed for Adam Yauch in his memory. In June 2014, Mike D stated that the Beastie Boys would not continue their careers as a group, as a promise to Adam Yauch. Look out for their autobiography that has been postponed for a 2017 release. Purchase memorabilia on their social media pages below and continue to “Fight…. for your right…to partyyyy!” Rest in peace MCA.

Makin Sound In The Underground: RhymSter

RHyms

Local Chicago Hip Hop MC RhymSter is stirring up quite the buzz around the underground scene. Since the release of his last singles You Don’t Know and Can’t Fuck With Us RhymS has been busy making more music, networking and doing shows around Chicago and getting his name and brand out there. These days you can catch him bouncing around open mics in Chicago between Lily’s on Lincoln and Halsted and Subterranean in Wicker Park. With this ambition he has been turning heads and gainin some street cred.

While building a good name for himself at open mics, underground Chicago artists from SAK Crew have taken notice to RhymSters talents . One thing leads to another and RhymS and the SAK Crew start doing shows together. Recently headlining a show at the Cubby Bear in Wrigleyville, RhymSter invited SamIAm the MC from SAK, an off the top Freestyler, MTV World Rap Battle finalist and BET‘s 106 & Park Freestyle Friday Hall of Famer, onto the stage to cap off a wicked set. It was not long before RhymS was initiated a member of their crew.

While RhymS chit chats with the local artists, gaining support for total world control, he has also been hard at work making beats with those same artists. Just a few days ago releasing Ya’ Playin, a head bopper with SamIAm the Mc, produced by the talented Hip Hop producer and RhymSters go to beat maker from Germany, Henrik3000. Also givin away another collab for free, Yin & Yang, produced by Frekwenzy and Sandlot MC L.x.

With all this being said, it is only the beginning for RhymSter. He has so much more planned. Linguistic Rhetoric, an EP in the works, straight hip hop, is gonna be a must if you love that creative flow. More work with Henrik3000, MachoBeatz. Shows, of course, you have to catch RhymS at one of the freestyle open mics at SubT, or Lily’s or where ever he finds one, no place is safe. Or you know you can wait for a tour. He knows how to catch a crowd, even from the top of his dome.
