It was inevitable. The “clean” version of Beastie Boys’ new album “Hot Sauce Committee Part 2” leaked over this weekend, but the troupe is battling like with like. The unedited “dirty” version is now streaming in its entirety at the group’s website and right here, on this very page. Their loss is your gain.
“So as a hostile and retaliatory measure with great hubris we are making the full explicit aka filthy dirty nasty version available for streaming on our site. We hope this brings much happiness, hugs, and harmony. Enjoy Kikoos for life!” read a statement.
Fifteen of the 16 track scan also be purchased now, too, with the exception to “Say It.” Why? I don’t know, because it’s probably your new jam? Also, Santigold helps out on incredible “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win.” A full review and report pending.
“Hot Sauce Committee” is slated for its traditional release on May 3.
Furthermore, since the promo machine is at full blast, you can check out star-studded “Fight For Your Revisited” in its entirety, too; included are the shots from the “Make Some Noise” music video and from the trailer.
The band has made no plans to tour — likely in response to Adam “MCA” Yauch’s fight against cancer — but posted a LiveStream of a boombox blasting “Hot Sauce” from midcourt at Madison Square Garden. If they can’t play at the ‘Garden right now, at least their jams have blasted there.
