Riff: Bad Brains – “MCA Dub”

Nov 20, 2012

That’s the way…

from MCA Dub lyrics by Bad Brains

Bad Brains dedicate the album closer to late friend and Build a Nation producer Adam Yauch, also known as MCA. The largely indecipherable, reverb-soaked vocals again re-affirm the title: this is dub (but not dubstep, glow stick-wielding preteens and rape-minded frat boys).
