1990

Without the pressure and stress to create a quick follow up album to Paul's Boutique, the Beastie Boys gradually begin planning their next recording effort. With it making more sense to have a place where one could hang out and record any time of day and any day of the week, as opposed to having to arrange for expensive studio rental time slots; the decision is made to take the advance money that the record label supplied and purchase a building in Atwater Beach, CA. In order to make the old building's ball room into a studio, the Beastie Boys call upon the carpentry expertise of Money Mark Ramos-Nishita and producer Mario Caldato Jr.

Over time the Beastie Boys add a few touches of their own to the building which they simply refer to as "G-Son", as though it were the son of the Grasshoff "G-Spot" house that they rented upon first arriving in California. These personal touches include a basketball hoop and an indoor stakeboard ramp, which can be seen in the "Pass the Mic" music video. Upon completion of the remodeling, the Beastie Boys begin work on what will become known as "Check Your Head."
