The Beastie Boys

Yes, it's true: The Beastie Boys are pushing 40. As their original fan base comes to terms with being 30- and 40-somethings, the Beasties have responded by looking to the past on their latest CD. To the Five Boroughs represents a throwback to the formative days of rap music, casting its gaze on a period that took place well before even the Beasties dipped their sardonic little toes in hip-hop -- the streets of New York during the late '70s. Who would've guessed that three white rappers from New York would still be around 20 years after forming. Here's to the art of aging gracefully with one hand on your crotch. -- Saby Reyes-Kulkarni
