Beastie Boys- Ill Communication

A well-established entity, the Beastie Boys couldn’t lose with Ill Communication. Free to do whatever they wanted as a proven success story, “Sabotage” was closer to rock and roll than hip-hop, but they maintained respect from rap fans everywhere. Receiving the ultimate cosign, Q-Tip’s guest appearance on “Get It Together” further validated Mike D, Ad-Rock and MCA when they didn’t even need it. Continuing to beat the odds, the trio would only go on to get bigger with their following album Hello Nasty thanks to their monster comeback hit “Intergalactic.”
