KRS-One Pays Tribute to the WRONG Deceased Beastie Boy

Heh. We got a good chuckle out of this one. Rapper KRS-One recently made a musical tribute to deceased stars. It’s a nice thought, right? Unfortunately, he tried to include the late member of the Beastie Boys and got the wrong one.

Oops! KRS-One got called out for making a mix-up on his newest song “Hip Hop Speaks from Heaven.”

KRS-One, whose real name is Lawrence Parker, released the song “Hip Hop Speaks from Heaven” just last week. In it, he mentions many artists who are no longer alive. These ranged from recent deaths to ones that happened a while ago. For example, some of the names dropped in the lyrics include Notorious B.I.G. and J Dilla.

Here’s one of the lines: “Like a late fog in the mist/ I see King Ad-Rock/ And rest in peace Nate Dogg/ Their names and their natures will last.”

Notice anything fishy? Ad-Rock is the nickname of Adam Horovitz of the Beastie Boys, who is still alive and kickin’. Apparently KRS-One got Horovitz mixed up with another Beastie Boys member, Adam “MCA” Yauch.
