Watch The Roots Cover “Paul Revere” By Beastie Boys

    This month we witnessed the tragic passings of both Beastie Boy Adam “MCA” Yauch and “the godfather of go-go” Chuck Brown. Over the Memorial Day weekend the Roots played this year’s JazzReggae Festival at UCLA and took the opportunity to remember both musicians. After expressing their sadness at the loss of “two friends,” the band covered the Beastie Boys’s 1986 classic “Paul Revere.” The performance streams below. [2DBZ]
