No Sleep ‘Til: The Best of MCA
by Erik K. Johnson
Today, I had a post written that is consistent with my content. I was ready to post it for you.
I was saddened when I heard the news of MCA’s death earlier today. Though I’ve been musical since my youth and long before “Licensed To Ill“, the Beastie Boys was the first concert I ever attended. I first discovered them in the movie “Krush Groove“. They’ve always been a big part of my musical history.
As I read this post, I realized how much MCA’s writing clicks with the philosophies I’ve been suggesting. He is always focused, creative, witty, engaging, entertaining, surprising, and vivid with his details. He includes words and phrases in his lyrics most wouldn’t normally consider. I truly admire his work for that.
Even if you are not a fan of hip hop, I would still recommend the attached blog as a worthwhile read. MCA’s style is admirable and inspirational. He will surely be missed.
I’ll return tomorrow with another podcast post. Until then, RIP MCA.
