In 2011, a year before Adam Yauch more commonly recognised as MCA of The Beastie Boys tragically passed away, the iconic hiphop group released their final and eighth studio LP Hot Sauce Committee, which contained one of the most notable tracks on the wax ‘Too Many Rappers’ a collaboration with the legendary emcee, Nas, and guess what, an official video clip has leaked online, and it’s rad.

Directed by Roman Coppola, the previously unreleased vid features the entire crew of The Beastie Boys and the one and only nasty Nas (who is about to electrify Aussie shores), the quartet cruisin’ and rhymin’ through the isles of supermarkets, parks, on stage at gigs and various snippets old footage, and was apparently discovered by a fan on a Beastie Boys message board, who of course, spread the good news, as the guys at Stereogum point out.

The ‘Too Many Rappers’ visual is of fairly important significance as it is said to be the last ever music video that the aforementioned MCA appeared in before he lost his battle with cancer in May of 2012, spiking a large amount of love and adoration for the rap champion.

We’ve waffled on enough so take a look at the leaked video clip below:
