Back in 2008 when the Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch was promoting his basketball documentary, Gunnin' For That #1 Spot, he called in to MC Serch's "The Old Skool Show" on Hot 102.7 in Detroit. The two talked about the early days of the Beastie Boys, how things played out with record labels, and MCA picks his top 5 hip-hop songs at the 48:00 mark.

On this sad occasion, Serch reached out and wanted to share this with Complex. We've spent all day revisiting our favorite Beastie songs and videos, and it's good to round things off with this classic conversation with one of hip-hop's true legends. It has never been available on the Internet until today.
