Today marks the 51st birthday of New York rapper Mike D! As one third of the Beastie Boys, Mike D exploded onto the scene in 1986 with the release of the group’s debut album, Licensed To Ill. Since then, Mike D has enjoyed one of the longest-running careers in all of hip-hop, releasing eight albums with the group and touring around the world.

Though the Beastie Boys haven’t recorded or performed in years, they continue to give back to the hip-hop and music community.
