Last Lap: Are The Beastie Boys Planning To Make New Music?

The Ready Set prepares for summer, Prince heads to the tennis court, and Psy recruits an interesting guest star for his next single.

  • During court proceedings, it became clear that the surviving members of the Beastie Boys have no plans to record new music. Mike D explained that as a promise to the late Adam “MCA” Yauch, the pioneering hip-hop group will not create new tracks. [Pitchfork]
  • The Ready Set is taking his sound on the road this summer by joining the Warped Tour. Does he prefer to play early in the morning or later in the evening? The singer tells Big Morning Buzz Live.
  • Prince, in all his purpleness, stopped by the French Open today to take in some world-class tennis. And it was perhaps fitting that he carried around a regal scepter during his time at Roland Garros Stadium. [TMZ]
  • After the second game of the NBA Finals, K-pop king Psy will be debuting a new song, which happens to feature Snoop Dogg. The artists plan to introduce the song during a special airing of Jimmy Kimmel Live on Sunday, which gives us enough time to process that those two teamed up for a song in the first place.
