Combine rap, hip-hop, jazz, funk, rock and a whole lot of wit in their rhymes to create some of my favourite albums of all time. MCA was a hell of an MC too.

Key Albums: Paul's Boutique, Ill Communication, Licensed to Ill

There's a lot for aspiring musicians to take away from the first four studio albums. Beastie Boys have a way of maintaining their consistent sound but still maintain some level of variance between each of them.

I agree with captain dude, paul's boutique is amazing and the rest of the albums are inconsistent... but still a lot of great tracks.

RIP MCA... These white boys from New York redefined the genre twice. First, when they infused hip-hop with a punk rock attitude, second, when they added funky jazz samples and loops to their tracks. One of my all-time favourites.

These guys are so much fun, they've "got more flavor than fruit striped gum". First 5 albums are amazing.

"Paul's Boutique" is an incredible album. After that, stick to the hits.
