Mike D. & Ad-Rock of the Beastie Boys stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night (Dec. 20) to talk about their sub-par rap rating from Kool Moe Dee, a nasty Chinatown apartment Mike shared with late bandmate Adam Yauch in the old days and an early appearance at the MTV Music Video Awards.
Kimmel opened by talking about the jam-packed Beastie Boys Book, which features everything from a short graphic novel to recipes, photos, stories and just about everything else you can imagine. One of the most unusual things included in the coffee table book is a report card that was first included in the sleeve of an album from rapper Kool Moe Dee back in the late ‘80s. Dee graded all the members of the rap community, awarding The Beastie Boys a "C," the lowest of all the grades on the list.
“He thinks we suck,” joked Ad-Rock. “It’s actually weird because we love Kool Moe Dee… It was pretty funny.”
