Licensed to Ill was a huge rap breakthrough. Without albums like Licensed to Ill, rap would not have broken into the mainstream, at least not then. The Beasties personify old school rap and many people were disappointed with their later work and wanted them to record more music like Licensed to Ill. While the raps and grooves seem a bit simplistic now, it still sounds great. "Fight for Your Right" was and is a classic party theme. What's amazing about this album is how many of the songs became classics.
