Red Bull Music presents a special feature on Beastie Boys' iconic Licensed To Ill on the album's 30th anniversary featuring TITAN's thoughts on this groundbreaking record. Alongside Wu-Tang Clan's RZA, Andrew W.K., Santigold, Wyclef Jean, Interpol's Paul Banks among others, TITAN share how this album shaped music history as we know it:
"Music was more free at the time of "Licensed to Ill." You could use samples from other bands and the Beastie Boys were the ones who really started it. Now it’s too complicated in the music industry to make albums like this anymore. We first heard this album when we were young kids. "Licensed to Ill," "Rhymin’ & Stealin'" in particular, was a shock — like the plane that’s on the cover."
