Beastie Boys, the Book

Mike D und Ad Rock haben einen Vertrag für eine Beastie Boys-Biographie unterschrieben, das Teil soll im Herbst 2015 erscheinen und sich stilistisch am Werk der Beasties orientieren.

The Beastie Boys are “interested in challenging the form and making the book a multidimensional experience,” Ms. Grau said in an interview. “There is a kaleidoscopic frame of reference, and it asks a reader to keep up.”

The book, to be edited by the hip-hop journalist Sacha Jenkins, will be loosely structured as an oral history. It will also have contributions by other writers, as well as a strong visual component. Ms. Grau and Luke Janklow, the group’s agent, both compared it to Grand Royal, the Beastie Boys’ acclaimed but short-lived magazine in the 1990s, which explored some of its wide-ranging pop-culture interests with curiosity and snark.
