Beastie Boys Respond To Hot Sauce Album Leak By Giving It Away

Albums are leaked like it rains in Pittsburgh. It happens more often than you think; and you probably think it happens all the time. So when the clean version of the latest Beastie Boys album, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, was leaked, the rap group decided to try a different approach. Instead of making God turn off the rain, they handed out umbrellas.
In a statement from their website they say:
"Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, the 'clean' version of our new album, The Hot Sauce Committee pt 2 has leaked. "So as a hostile and retaliatory measure with great hubris we are making the full explicit aka filthy dirty nasty version available for streaming on our site. We hope this brings much happiness, hugs, and harmony."
The album will be officially released in May, but until then you can listen to it by clicking play right here:
