#6. Beastie Boys, Licensed to Ill (1986)

Favorite song: "Paul Revere"

Tech N9ne: “Big album, monumental. You ain’t never heard any white boys come out rapping like that. ‘Paul Revere,’ c’mon man. ‘No Sleep Till Brooklyn,’ c’mon dog. It’s beautiful music. ‘Paul Revere’ is produced by Rick Rubin, but I think [Rev] Run actually did the beat and ran it backwards, if my history is correct. Run had something to do with it because I studied that beat.”
