Reasons why I love Youtube # 23

Two for today. The first being a clip of very badly behaved Beastie Boys indeed performing (You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party) live on Japanese TV in 1987 with a little help from Ricky Powell. Sexism, racism, homophobia, Mike D in a Stüssy t-shirt and a VW symbol chain, oriental hookers - this video truly has it all :


It's tempting to suggest that MCA became a Buddhist Dalai Lama-sympathiser in the 90s purely due to the guilt he felt after the "with your oriental pussy you can suck my dick" lyric switch they pulled in this performance.

And the second clip being A-Mafia's very secrete and very rare Mafia Anthem debut video from 2003. Song being out-of-sync with the video swag on a trillion gazillion :


A decent enough joint over the I Shot Ya/50 Shot Ya Lyn Collins break, but mainly notable for historical reasons as a video to fellow Dipset marks with it being the first time the Purple City crew of Agallah The Don Bishop, Shiest Bub and Un Kasa were caught together on camera and the moment where Un Kasa officially replaced Big L as the least threatening-looking Harlem thug Rapper of all time :
