The Beastie Boys teamed up with Nas for the collaborative effort “Too Many Rappers“. The single was taken from the eighth studio album “Hot Sauce Committee Part Two” but received very little commercial success. The official video was directed by Roman Coppola and has today being uploaded to Youtube.
