Mike D and Ad-Rock, the remaining two members of Beastie Boys after Adam Yauch’s unfortunate passing, have reportedly signed a deal to release their memoirs in 2015.

The book, which is currently untitled according to The New York Times, will not follow a traditional linear storyline, but instead will focus on a “pastiche of voices, images, irreverent humor and pop-culture reference points.”

The Beastie Boys memoir will be dedicated to Adam Yauch, who succumbed to cancer in 2012, and is expected to be an oral history of the popular rap-rock group from their beginnings until Adam’s passing.

According to Julie Grau of Spiegel & Grau, the Random House imprint releasing the memoirs, fans can expect a similar tone to the group’s 1990 magazine Grand Royale.

The Beastie Boys are “interested in challenging the form and making the book a multidimensional experience,” Grau said in an interview.

"There is a kaleidoscopic frame of reference, and it asks a reader to keep up."

Hip-hop journalist, Sacha Jenkins, will edit the book.
