Far East Movement Cover Beastie Boys’ “So What’cha Want” Live
You’ve got to fight for your right to party, but there’s barely any battle at all if you want to cover a Beastie Boys song nowadays. Ke$ha is planning to add their 1987 party anthem to the set list of her Get $leazy tour, and East L.A. hip-pop outfit Far East Movement put their own spin on a Beastie Boys classic, “So What’cha Want”, while performing in glow-in-the-dark couture live at The Cherrytree House. And they basically turned the Boys’ rock-rap hit into every single Auto-Tuned club song currently on the radio. Still: pretty jumpin! Watch below.
Far East Movement recently got covered by Diddy-Dirty Money, who turned their “Like A G6” into a G7. Upgrade!
Here’s the original, in case you’re unfamiliar:
There will be even more Beastie tunes available for dance-club remakes on their forthcoming Spring release, Hot Sauce Committee Part 2. (Don’t even bother to ask what happened to Part 1.)
