We asked Alex Kinsella to pick an album from the Rolling Stone 500 Greatest list and he went with a juvenile little disc called "Licensed to Ill" by the Beastie Boys, which just so happens to also be one of the most important albums in hip hop history. On this episode we cover:

  • The group's unique place in the early days of hip hop
  • Cultural appropriation and why this album IS NOT a good example
  • The use of humour and satire
  • The surprisingly glowing critical reception this album received AT THE TIME
