Publisher Description

Derided as one-hit wonders, estranged from their original producer and record label, and in self-imposed exile in Los Angeles, the Beastie Boys were written off by most observers before even beginning to record their second album – an embarrassing commercial flop that should have ruined the group's career. But not only did Paul's Boutique eventually transform the Beasties from a fratboy novelty to hip-hop giants, its sample-happy, retro aesthetic changed popular culture forever.

Terrific TiO! T) ,

The beat you'll ever hear

The greatest ever .

OJ Brooklyn ,

A great book about a great album.

A relative flop at the time, that album has become a 20th Century Classic. Hear how it was made and what was going on at the time with the Beasties.
