You’d want to jump these suckers yourself if the protean beat underneath all their blather weren’t played so close to the bone. Producer-DJ Rick Rubin recycles licks ripped from Led Zeppelin, James Brown and Mr. Ed with razor-sharp precision and a sense of humor. Licensed to Ill is one hard-rockin’ cartoon, a rappin’ caricature so huge only a grown-up sourpuss could take it seriously.
Beastie Boys released Licensed to Ill 27 years ago today. See why it is the best debut album of all time.
