Video of an Un-Aired Beastie Boys Performance on Chappelle’s Show Surfaces
Even a few days later the shitty news of Beastie Boys’ member Adam “MCA” Yauch’s passing stings. Fuck cancer, really.
In 2004, Yauch and the rest of the Beastie Boys performed their song “The New Style” for what would have been the third season of Chappelle’s Show. They all loaded onto a boat that traveled up the East River of NYC. The clip never aired because of the now infamous way Dave Chappelle ended Chappelle Show and subsequent cancellation of a third season of the show.
Yesterday, Chappelle Show’s co-creator Neal Brennan posted the clip on his YouTube page for the first time with the statement, “Rest in Peace, Adam Yauch. You were excellent.”
The clip with the group on a boat, in New York, with Dave Chappelle, is too damn perfect.
