Watch the Beastie Boys Perform with Dave Chappelle in a Never-Before-Seen ‘Chappelle’s Show’ Clip


The outpouring of affectionate tributes to Adam Yauch since the news of the Beastie Boys’ death broke has been touching — and also somewhat unprecedented. Everyone seems to have a kind word to say or a fond memory to share about MCA, a man whose quarter-century of artistic progress was matched only by his personal growth during that time. Chappelle’s Show co-creator Neal Brennan is no different; he’s uploaded an unaired clip of The Beastie Boys performing “The New Style” with an assist from Dave Chappelle back in 2004. The scene was shot for the show’s famously unfinished third season, and it is pretty great. It’s only fair to warn you, though, that like every other video clip of MCA you’ve seen in the past few days, this one might well make you tear up. Watch now before it gets taken down; apparently Viacom already removed another version that was floating around.
