iTunes Review

The trio’s unparalleled bar-trading chemistry is further showcased on the raw, minimal “Pass the Mic,” and their sincerity shines on post-9/11 tribute “An Open Letter to NYC.”

But the Beasties weren't pirating -- instead, they treated rap as part of a post-punk musical underground, where the D.I.Y. aesthetics of hip-hop and punk weren't that far apart.
