Questlove x Beastie Boys Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame DEMO STREAM

This is a killer behind the scenes look at the upcoming Beastie Boys induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It seems the Roots are being asked to perform in tribute to the band, who lost one of their key voices, MCA, earlier this year. From the sound of this demo, the Illadelph crew was having a ball. Big up to J. Period for the look out on this one.
