    Hey did anyone else get this? I got the audiobook so I could listen to Mike D and Ad Rock narrate their own words. Little did I know they had a plethora of famous folks to narrate as well! Here are some examples:

    - Steve Buscemi (Did you know he pronounces his name "Boo-Sem-Ee"?)
    - John Stewart
    - Snoop Dog
    - Rosie Perez
    - Will Ferrell
    - Elvis Costello
    - Ben Stiller
    - Joseph Simmons
    - LL Cool J
    - Tim Meadows
    ETC!

    So many great voices on this book.

    Anyway, I want to get the hardcover as well since it has all the pics that you can't experience in an audiobook.

    Cool book, great stories and man they seem like just cool genuine cats. So sad that MCA wasn't there to add his mark onto the book but he's there in spirit.

    Anyone else pick it up?

    Nope. Didn't know it was out. I'm not a huge fan of the Bestie Boys but I do like some of their stuff. If I played bass, the solo in Sabotage would be the first I'd learn!

    Maybe I'll pick it up over the holidays, thanks for the heads up.

    I haven’t read it, as I’m not much of a fan, but there’s no denying that they left their mark on music, which earns my respect every time.
    Cool little surprise with all the different celebs doing the narrating.
