In a special hour-long interview with George Stroumboulopoulos, the Beastie Boys' Ad-Rock and Mike D open up about their 39-year career as one of hip-hop's most influential acts.
They talk about why they're not proud of the lyrics on their seminal 1986 album, Licensed to Ill, unheard Beastie Boys music, the loss of member Adam "MCA" Yauch, and what the future holds for them as a group. They also share their feelings on new groups like Brockhampton, and how the album cover of Eminem's latest surprise release, Kamikaze, looks strangely similar to Licensed to Ill.
Watch the entire interview below.
