Beastie Boys Video Shot 10 Years Ago in Nashville Resurfaces

A LOT has changed in Nashville over the last 10 years - the skyline has added a bunch of new skyscrapers, the streets are full of pedal taverns and approximately 1.3 million people move here each day.

Back in 2009, the Beastie Boys filmed a music video with Nas for their song "Too Many Rappers," in Nashville! 

Apparently the trio, along with Nas, was on their way to Bonnaroo when they stopped in Music City to do an impromptu video. They used West End and Midtown primarily - you can see the Parthenon, an Arby's dumpster (now Cookout on West End) and a few grocery stores.

The live shots were filmed at Bonnaroo!

 

The video, however, never got officially released. A fan from Ireland originally found the video in 2015 and it's now making its way around the interwebs again!

Enjoy the trip down memory lane!
