Although rapidly approaching the half-century mark, all three members of The Beastie Boys are as sprightly as ever. Their recent “Make Some Noise” video proves that Mike D, Ad-Rock and MCA can still spit with the best whippersnappers. Chalk it up as just another career win for the NYC Gentiles. Approaching fast upon the heels of the aforementioned song, the boys release “Don’t Play No Game I Can’t Win,” another track from the upcoming Hot Sauce Committee Part Two LP.
The Beasties call upon Santigold to provide her trademark echo to line the track’s lyrical underbelly. The track has a distinct dub vibe that correlates well with Santigold and The Beastie Boys’ experimental, worldly tendencies. Although there are less bars and more heady rhythms, it provides another chewable morsel while anticipating Part Two’s May 3 release.
Beastie Boys Feat. Santigold – “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win”
For those fans still not satisfied, The Beasties are streaming Hot Sauce Committee Part Two in its entirety via a TDK 3 Speaker Boombox placed inside MSG. It didn’t provide the sonic inspiration necessary for a Knicks’ series revitalization but its appearance should provide a nice consolation for Carmelo & Co.’s exit.
