As many of you know, the Beastie Boys’ new album The Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2 has already leaked, but it’s the “clean” version. So, the boys are striking back by giving the fans what they really want, the “explicit” version. It’s up now and streaming on the Beasties’ Soundcloud. As the band says, “As a hostile and retaliatory measure with great hubris we are making the full explicit aka filthy dirty nasty version available for streaming on our site. We hope this brings much happiness, hugs, and harmony. Enjoy Kikoos for life!”
