The Last Dance

Available on ESPN and Hulu

Intended Audience: Mature


This ten-part docuseries is fast paced just like Michael Jordan was on the court. You do not know the true Michael Jordan until you watch this. This docuseries tells the untold story of Michael Jordan and his final season with the Chicago Bulls. Michael Jordan is a very competitive person, both on and off the court. On the court, Michael would demand some his teammates to not pass the ball to certain players in order to lead the Bulls to victory. The docuseries shows the relationship between the players and the front office. The docuseries features Dennis Rodman, Scottie Pippen, Phil Jackson, and more.


Licensed to Ill by the Beastie Boys

Music available to Easton residents on Hoopla

Intended Audience: Mature


Did you know, Licensed to Ill was the first rap album to top the Billboard album chart.


After watching the Bestie Boys Story for the second time, I have been listening to the Bestie Boys non-stop. The Beastie Boys rap about frat boy things like hanging out with their friends and having a good time. This was their debut album.


Rick Rubin, produced the album, sampled songs from Led Zeppelin to the Steve Miller Band. The song "Rhymin' and Stealin'" features the drum intro to "When the Levee Breaks" by Led Zeppelin and the guitar riff to "Sweet Leaf" by Black Sabbath. The Beastie Boys make pirate references throughout this song. Rolling Stone Magazine list this album as one of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. It was also named Best Debut Album of all time.


Paul's Boutique by the Beastie Boys

Music CD

Intended Audience: Mature


Paul's Boutique is the Beastie Boys second studio album. The initial release of Paul's Boutique was a commercial failure. The album was heavily sampled and the lyrics were dense. For instance, the song "Hey Ladies'", contains samples from seventeen songs. Also, the Beastie Boys did not rap about frat boy stuff because they wanted to be taken seriously. People were disappointed because they wanted a "Fight For Your Right to Party Part Two". However, this album was a major breakthrough for the group due to its lyrical substance and the album made an impact in the hip hop community.



That's all for this week. Let us know what you think!
