Beastie Boys get mural in NYC
It’s nice to now you have fans, real fans, but LeRoy McCarthy went a step further and really showed how much he cares about Beastie Boys and their legacy. After his attempt to rename the intersection of Rivnigton and Ludlow streets to Beastie Boys Square went sour, he managed to bring back to life Paul’s Boutique. On July 25th it was 25 years since the sophomore album by the Beastie Boys named after this New York store came out. Paul’s Boutique doesn’t exist anymore, but the artist, Danielle Mastrion will design a huge mural on the side of the current proprietor’s establishment, Wolfnights.
After very successful debut album, Beasties left Def Jam and moved to L.A. to work on their second album with The Dust Brothers. The result was “Paul’s Boutique”, one of the best albums of all-time and not just in Hip-Hop.
