Another episode of "Rappin' with the Rickster"

Some of the most popular video that I've uploaded to YouTube has been footage from Ricky Powell's public access television show "Rappin' with the Rickster." Today I discovered that someone else has uploaded another episode of "Rappin' with the Rickster" to YouTube. In this particular episode, Ricky Powell gives fans an inside look at the Beastie Boys' Skills to Pay the Bills home video.

Emily, if you've seen the Anthology dvd, you've seen pretty much everything that's on the Skills to Pay the Bills video. There are a few edits on STPTB that are different from the Anthology videos. For example, "Netty's Girl" on STPTB has some brief footage of Horovitz and Ione Skye. If I recall correctly, "Shake Your Rump" has some different edits to it too. The "Slow and Low" live video, as shown in "Rappin' with the Rickster," is probably the most unique item on the video, along with the "Skills to Pay the Bills" animated video, featuring the beloved Brooklyn Dust elephant.
