Default I found the Too Many Rappers video!

Hey guys and gals, I rarely post on here but I believe I made a major discovery this evening. While on a bus journey watching the credits of the "Don't Play No Game" video on my iPad I spotted the name Neal Usatin. Recognising it from his previous work on Oscilloscope Labs projects I Googled the name to see what else he had worked on. During my digging on his website 'sweetcutz.com' I found his online résumé which curiously listed a credit on the unreleased "Too Many Rappers" video, directed by Roman Coppola. Further digging unearthed the treasure we have been looking for these past few years, thought by some to not even exist. To me this is the biggest news from the boys since that sad, fateful day in 2012. So here it is, my fellow Beastie heads! Please enjoy, it's better than I could have ever imagined!

Best find ever -- super thank you. This is an amazing video revealed and found. It was privately listed in September 2013 (see below). I cannot determine when it became public. If someone could rip it quickly before it becomes private again that would be amazing.

You guys fell off, I think the band all feels that the record did really well. Most musicians I grew up playing music with would probably shoot me if I ever complained about selling 800,000 records."

that was great to see! thanks! I wonder if that was pre-production? It must have been done the same time of Bonneroo performance Still has the MCA verse before they decided to change it from the touchy subject matter too.think that might explain why it wasn't released?
Anyways, thanks again for the find of the last few years! that's one of the things mentioned in the vault thread that's now checked off. How can we download this before it gets pulled? I made an iphone video of it off screen lol

Use firefox and get the free add-in video downloadhelper. Once you go to the page just right click and download video

Here's hoping that this is just the beginning of "new to us" material. NexT I of course hope is the Jerry Lewis...and the memoir.

Man I can't believe this has been sitting on the internet undiscovered for some amount of time. What a find.

Been looking forward to this video ever since that photo came out of them rapping in the supermarket. Really great video, full of the signature Beasties lofi video aesthetic but with some cool additions.

It's a shame it didn't drop at the time, it would have been great promotion for the album. Although I guess Make Some Noise with all the guests was in some ways a much bigger intro.

Pretty damn great anyhow!

sweet and sad to see the band with all that energy.

filmed entirely in Nashville in 2009, I presume?

Usatin was one of the main AIFST editors and was sax man on Dont Play No Game. Great Find!
