Beastie Boy's MCA In the Directors Chair

One-third of the old school hip hop super group the Beastie Boy's, Adam Yauch, aka MCA recently premiered his independently filmed streetball documentary Gunnin for That #1 Spot at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Slated for a June 27th release in movie theaters, the film follows the lives of 8 young up and coming basketball players vying for a chance to play with the big boys. The film takes a candid look at the players during their formative years in High School. It looks like this is going to be the '08 version of Hoop Dreams; the epic documentary covering the lives of highly touted basketball prospects William Gates and Arthur Agee. That was an excellently executed film, and in my mind, sets the benchmark for basketball documentaries. But if anyone can turn it out properly, its the legendary MCA. Enjoy the flurry of bball laced media content below. We got the Beastie Boys, and some Wu Tang All Stars in this biznitch.
