Beastie Boys ‎– Hold It, Now Hit It (US 12″)

Early Hip Hop from the Beastie Boys on the seminal Def Jam label and produced by the label owner, Rick Rubin released in 1986. A very short 12″ with just 2 variations of the track originally on “Licensed To Ill”

Primitive and sounding like South Park in places. Now for the anoraks here is a list of the samples. The song “Take Me to the Mardi Gras” by Bob James intro is being borrowed to create the beats, the horn sample and whistle is from “Funky Stuff” by Kool & the Gang. The”yo, Leroy!!” voice sample was taken from “The Return of Leroy Pt. 1” by The Jimmy Castor Bunch. The”hit it!’ part is taken from “La Di Da Di” by Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick. The “Hold it now!” sample is from “Christmas Rappin'” by Kurtis Blow. The break down beat is taken from “Let’s Get Small” by Trouble Funk and “drop the bomb” by the same band. Phew!
