Backstage at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, Public Enemy rapper Chuck D reminisced about playing early Beastie Boys records on the radio in Long Island in the early Eighties. "People talk about Jay-Z and Eminem, but it's impossible to talk about those dudes without the magnitude of LL Cool J and the Beastie Boys, who made it possible for them," he says. "That's evolution, but the revolution is LL Cool J and the Beastie Boys."
