Beastie Boys - Ill Communication (1994). Like its predecessor Check Your Head, Ill Communication is not strictly a Hip Hop album, but a mash-up of styles with liberal doses punk-rock thrown in the mix. Never afraid to experiment and to do exactly what they wanted, Beastie Boys stayed true to their punk-rock roots on this album
for Check Your Head was simple - combine the two albums, and somehow come up with something that was artistically valid, and would still sell.

Maybe Check Your Head doesn't hit the same rap-geek nerves that Licensed to Ill or Paul's Boutique did, but let's look at it this way: It was a worthwhile experiment that resulted in some vital music. The Beastie Boys knew that Paul's was finding appreciation as a cult album, but they couldn't recapture its feeling, not after its commercial failure left them practically forced to take a new tack. Making that approach a smaller-budget, DIY/punk mutation of everything they'd tried along the way and starting from the ground up as a band rather than a crew of MCs was.
