Behind the Beats and Lyrics...

Samples:

  • Lyrical bits from "Pass the Mic" by the Beastie Boys - Check Your Head by the Beastie Boys

Commentary:

Beastie Boys

"...Adam would bring in a beat, I'd have some sounds, or another groove, and we'd sync that up. Then we'd go through and put it all together. This track gave us the opportunity to let the music go beyond what it could with the vocals on it. We had all been influenced by Lee Perry's productions. We were into how on reggae recordings there would often be a "dub version" on the b-side of a single, a practice that got co-opted by a few punk and early hip-hop singles as well" - Michael Diamond, 1999
