"'Hot Sauce Committee, Part Two' is the eighth studio album by the Beastie Boys. The album was originally scheduled to follow 'Hot Sauce Committee Part One,' but after Adam 'MCA' Yauch was diagnosed with cancer, the group decided to postpone the record indefinitely. Speaking to the BBC back in February 2009, before he received the diagnosis, Yauch enthusiastically promised that the group's eighth studio album would take fans in a ''bizarre'' new direction. Once the bassist was diagnosed with cancer, the group's plans hit a roadblock - but, as it turns out, they were far from derailed. Ultimately, the Beastie Boys took all of the 16 tracks that were slated to comprise 'Part One,' and moved them over to 'Part Two' without changing the title. Included among the 16 new tracks is 'Too Many Rappers,' featuring Nas, which the group debuted during a performance at Bonnaroo in 2009. Also making an appearance on the new album is Santigold, who contributed to the track 'Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win'." (label info)
