Beastie Boy Mike D might have been inducted in the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame this week, but that doesn’t mean the hip-hop legend is just chilling in his mansion. The MC still has serious cred, hanging out at Stones Throw HQ in Los Angeles long enough record this 45 minute podcast with Peanut Buter Wolf. The pair keep it mostly old school, talking over tracks from Public Enemy, Kraftwerk and Strafe, but also toss in a new tune by Santigold, proving that their ears are still fresh.
Mike D is in LA currating the Transmission LA: AV Club, at the MOCA Geffen Contemporary, described as a “17-day multi-disciplinary festival, featuring the work of 16 contemporary artists, musicians, designers, filmmakers, chefs and live music/DJ events.” The Stones Throw crew will be appearing at the fest on April 21st with DJs Dam-Funk, J Rocc, Jonti & Peanut Butter Wolf.
