As his Quarantine beard grew, his anxieties and frustrations with stagnation also grew and poet, rapper Chad Galactic racked his brain to come up with ideas to raise funds for out-of-work artists. Feeling inspired, he started by designing stickers with artist/friend, “PickleKing” that created a stream of income for those in need.

Galactic kept the ball rolling and motivated to assemble an all-star band that recorded a cover of the song “Shake Your Rump” by the Beastie Boys. Joining him from The Mother Hips, guitarist Greg Loiacono and bassist Brian Rashap. Tea Leaf Green drummer, Scotty Rager. And Jack Johnson/ALO keyboardist, Zach Gill. Even Beastie Boys’ own DJ/Producer DJ Hurricane participated on the track. And in true Galactic style, Chad took on all three of the Boys' vocal parts...yes ALL THREE! 

“Recording this song hit me deeply. I was reminded how much Beastie Boys influenced me as a 13 year old in 1987. My Love for MCA kicked in again and my heart wept for our collective loss.” shared Galactic.

To accompany the track, Galactic also created a YAUCH Love Merch Store where half of the proceeds are being donated to the Tibetan Monks MCA loved so dearly. Yauch’s life accomplishments have been so influential on Galactic that he felt very deeply to find a way to honor him. If you love Adam Yauch, please support Galactic’s efforts by downloading the track & purchasing some of the killer ‘Yauch Love’ merch, supporting the Namgyal Monastery in Ithaca, NY.
