I can’t believe it’s been 5 years since MCA passed. I’m not sure there is anyone who has inspired me artistically more than Adam Yauch.

“If you look at our country’s history,” Aziz said, “change doesn’t come from presidents. Change comes from large groups of angry people — and if day one is any indication, you are part of the largest group of angry people I have ever seen. Good luck.”
