Came out rapping when I was born
Mom said rock it 'til the break of dawn

from Beastie Boys – Body Movin' Lyrics on Rap Genius


At birth, Mike’s mom recognized his talent for rapping, and encouraged him to do what he loves. However, it should be noted that the Beastie Boys began as a punk band, long after “the godfather of rap,” Gil Scott-Heron, released his debut album in 1970.

Adam’s mom, Doris Keefe Horovitz, is beleived to have passed away just prior to the release of Licensed to Ill, and that album is dedicated to her.
