If you’re 51 today, you were 25 when the Beastie Boys released Licensed to Ill; you might remember dancing to “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)” They were inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame last year, just after the death of 47-year-old lead singer MCA. As the anniversary approaches, we’re starting to see some amazing tributes. Above, an artist put together a trailer for his London art show tribute to MCA. In his own words:
35 individual framed prints will be on show and for sale in London on May 4th – 5th 2013. Each print represents a different Beastie Boys track. All sales go to charity for cancer care and support. Venue and details to come. Follow me on Twitter @slimjimstudios for updates.
