Have Paul's Boutique ready for the drive home from work. Didn't even realize he had cancer.

While Rolling Stone ranked Paul's Boutique as one of the top 200 albums of all-time, it was License to Ill that was so important to the industry.

That album might be the most important album in hip-hop's history. It was not only groundbreaking in it's brash, almost raw style, it was also the first work of its kind to speak to both black and white cultures. It was the album that allowed hip-hop to cross over from exclusively a black entity into the mainstream.

It is thanks to the Beastie Boys that hugely influential bands such as Public Enemy were able to make the impact they did on the mainstream conscience.

Agree that while Paul's Boutique was their best work, that License To Ill was their most influential album. However, I think equal credit with regard to the latter goes to Run DMC's Raising Hell, which was released a couple months before LTI. Their version of Walk This Way was the first hip-hop song to break the Top 5 on the Billboard charts (#4)....and it pretty much revived the careers of Aerosmith as well. Credit Rick Rubin too, whose idea it was to remake the song and had to really sell Russell Simmons and Darryl McDaniels on doing it.

No question. I should have mentioned RunDMC, but since it was a Beastie Boys thread, I decided to just give them their due credit.

Without Adam Yauch, Marshall Mathers is never Eminem.

Thought this was one of the cooler things I have seen in the few days since MCA's passing.
