Watch this unreleased Beastie Boys video featuring Adam Yauch and Nas

New, 21 comments

Back in 2011, the Beastie Boys came out with their final studio album, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two. It was a critically acclaimed record, with many saying at the time that it was the group at their best. A year later, Adam Yauch, otherwise known as MCA, passed away from cancer. Now, fans have a chance to relive some of that old hype thanks to an up-until-now unreleased music video for one of the album's tracks, "Too Many Rappers."

The video was discovered by fan Eoin McLernon and posted onto a Beastie Boys forum yesterday. It features all three Beastie Boys and Nas strolling down streets, supermarket aisles, concert venues, and Arby's back alleys rapping and having a good time. Filmed by Roman Coppola, it's a great look at real artists just living life and enjoying their craft. Have a look. RIP MCA.

Update January 15th, 11:27AM: The Beastie Boys officially released the video for "Too Many Rappers" on YouTube on Wednesday. The original leak has been pulled.
