The Beastie Boys

Surviving Members Of The Beastie Boys To Release Memoir

(AllHipHop News)  Michael “Mike D” Diamond and Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz of the legendary New York Hip-Hop group the Beastie Boys have announced they will be creating a memoir focused on the band’s career. According to The New York Times, the book will be a “multidimensional experience” that features prominent pictures, snarky pop culture references, and contributions from other writers.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees had apparently been in talks about doing a book deal for several years, but the group was focused on the declining health of third member Adam “MCA” Yauch. Yauch died from cancer in May of 2012 at the age of 47.

The currently untitled memoir will be edited by Sacha Jenkins, co-founder of the 1990’s Hip-Hop magazine Ego trip and a creative consultant on The Boondocks television show. Jenkins has also written for Vibe, Rolling Stone, and Spin magazines.

The Beastie book will be published by Random House’s Spiegel & Grau imprint. Spiegel worked with Jay-Z (Decoded), Ta-Nehisi Coates (The Beautiful Struggle), M.K. Asante (Buck), and Wes Moore (The Other Wes Moore) to publish their autobiographies.

Spiegal & Grau plan for the Beastie Boys’ memoir to be an unconventional approach to telling the story of their lives.

“There is a kaleidoscopic frame of reference, and it asks a reader to keep up,” Julie Grau, publisher of Spiegal & Grau, told The Times.

The Beastie Boys’ book is expected to hit bookstores and tablets in the fall of 2015.
