Part 1 of 4: "Homeboy throw in the towel, Your girl got dicked by Ricky Powell." – Beastie Boys on the song 'Car Thief' featured on their groundbreaking album "Paul's Boutique."
Ricky Powell was there! Camera in hand, he was the lens through which we witnessed the ascent of the Beastie Boys and Run D.M.C. as they brought hip-hop from an underground art-form into the national spotlight. Often referred to as "the fourth Beastie Boy," hip-hop's most outrageous archeologist delivers the dirt on what happened behind the scenes amidst hip-hop's most epic transition to date: The "Raising Hell" & "Licensed to Ill" era.
Also, for the first time ever, the best of the Ricky Powell "Rappin' With The Rickster" episodes are available on DVD. This two-DVD box set also features the world famous Ricky Powell picture slideshow and is available here.
