Beastie Boys

The success of Run DMC during the golden age of hip hop helped to open the door for this wild and crazy Brooklyn trio who captured the ears of listeners with their classic party hard anthems during the 1980s. Today [May 4] one-third of the group left us as Adam "MCA" Yauch passed away at the age of 47. In honor of MCA and the Beastie Boys' legacy we recognize some other impactful threesomes in hip hop.
