To celebrate the 30th anniversary of their 1986 classic License to Ill, the Beastie Boys have announced a vinyl reissue. The reissue will be cut from the original masters and released on October 14 via Def Jam.

To celebrate his peers, Chuck D mentioned in the press release that, "The breakthrough of License To Ill in 1986 paved the road legitimizing Rap to its USA masses, and set the barometer worldwide on the genre album format. This record also expanded HipHop diversity allowing Public Enemy's Takes A Nation to be its antithesis."
