The drummer, DJ and mainman for The Roots (who, while we’re here, are also Jimmy Fallon’s house band on his Late Night Show), has posted the guide track for the Beastie Boys Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame tribute.

He posted it with a long explanation about the process of guide demos, why he chose particular songs to showcase during the tribute, and posted it in honour of the late MCA Adam Yauch, whose 48th birthday would’ve been this month.

Check out the demo below and click through for his little essay about the project.
