This just makes me warm, fuzzy and happy all over. New York City's own Entree Lifestyle street art crew headed to the Midwood section of Brooklyn this week to paint a massive mural honoring late Beastie Boys member Adam "MCA" Yauch, who attended Edward R. Murrow High School in that 'hood. Here's what the crew had to say about the mural and its inspiration... [via Gothamist]
"On a personal note, the Beastie Boys were like older brothers to us. Inspiring us as rappers, stereotype crushers, instrumentalists, culture kings, videographers, editors, business men, show men and as exceptional and special human beings. Thank you for the inspiration, for this and many many more good reasons, in the heart of Midwood Brooklyn, where it all began, we payed tribute to the energy he gave us in the best way we knew how. Thank you for your contributions to music, art, and humanity. Shout outs to Mike-D, King Ad Rock, and all of the family and friends of Adam Yauch. Our condolences during these difficult times. MCA's essence lives on."
True that. And in case you were wondering about that "gratitude" on the mural, well, here's the Boys' song of the same name...
Beastie Boys, "Gratitude"
