Although their impending tour a new album are on hold due to an unfortunate health issue from group member MCA, the Beastie Boys plan to release a very limited 12″ to indie record stores.
The limited record is of a live recording of their performance at this year’s Bonnaroo Festival, when Nas joined the the trio on stage to perform a new track titled “Too Many Rappers” from the forthcoming album Hot Sauce Committee, due later this fall.
The 12″ is limited to 5,000 copies, a move the Beasties did to return old school values, releasing music in a vinyl format before it goes out on a CD and digitally.
It is available now in stores.
