MCA. Angry Young Man to Near Statesman.

Watching and listening to more Beastie Boys material this just stands out. I will not bang on about MCA, but seriously what a huge loss.

Given the opportunity to speak to probably millions  how many artists come out with something this clear?

It made me think whilst listening to MCA talk in 1998 in this clip that he really did grow from angry young man to, well, near statesman. If his words here had been acted on the world would be a more peaceful place. Many people follow this path, but this is beyond maturity. Maybe it’s just growing up but few are so articulate and can deliver such a message…
