Beastie Boys : The Skills To Pay The Bills (from So Wat'cha Want 12")
Beastie Boys : The Skills To Pay The Bills (Capitol, 1992)
I already wrote, years ago about the Skills To Pay The Bills remix of Pass The Mic. But they like the catchphrase of 1992 so much that they had to make a song out of it. I remember they overused that expression in the interviews at the time, and in the ads for Check Your Head.
I'm probably wrong but I think this is the only one, or one of the very few raps that they did over live instrumentation.
Gotta love the distrorted microphone to appreciate this 12" because the other tracks here shared the same aesthetics.
