JDIZZY's 365 # 108: Pass The Mic

Pass The Mic - The Beastie Boys (1992)

Ah, the hip hop posse track! From The Sugar Hill Gang to The Wu Tang Clan, on down to the super group that gave us "Swagger Like Us", it has been a standard of braggadocio and aplomb in the field. Oddly enough, my favorite comes from a trio of white guys on their second best album (Let's think of Paul's Boutique as hip hop's Thick As A Brick: Concept Perfection!). Mike D, Ad-Roc and MCA rap like their lives depended on it, all while playing their own instruments (And you gotta love that rhyme of "commercial" to "commercial"!).
