The cover subject of Beastie Boys’ “Paul’s Boutique” inspires a mural from artist Danielle Mastrion. A New York City store featured on the cover of the the Beastie Boys’ Paul’s Boutique album inspired a mural that will be created on the storefront. The album, which turned 25 on July 25, inspired artist Danielle Mastrion to create the work, which will be featured on the Manhattan corner of Rivington and Ludlow.

Paul’s Boutique features the singles “Shake Your Rump” and “Hey Ladies.” In 2009, when Paul’s Boutique was reissued, the album earned a 5 X out of 5 rating from HipHopDX. In July 2013, producer Rick Rubin spoke about Paul’s Boutique and the impact the album had. “I think in some ways [their sophomore album] Paul’s Boutique was a reaction to Licensed To Ill, because I think they wanted to do something different, and I think Pauls Boutique, in their mind, was different,” Rubin said at the time. “I remember hearing Paul’s Boutique and it blowing my mind. “I really loved it,” he added. “I thought it was the future. When it came out, it wasnt very well-received, but it was really a brilliant album.” (via HipHop DX)
