MCA said, "ayo, you know this kid?"
I said, I didn't, but I knew he did
The kid said, "get ready cause this ain't funny
My name's Mike D and I'm about to get money."

from Beastie Boys – Paul Revere Lyrics on Rap Genius


Adrock says he doesn’t know this new dude (Mike D). But Adrock suspects that MCA has crossed paths with Mike (whether MCA admits it or not). They still aren’t sure they can trust each other.

This stranger reveals that his name is Mike D, and warns them that he is about to stick up the bar.
