The Sonos Play:5 Beastie Boys Edi­tion wire­less speaker doesn’t just live in a black-or-white world any­more. With the re­cent re­lease of the new “Beastie Boys Book” and now a graph­i­cally dec­o­rated red-and-white speaker, the punks turned rap­pers are hav­ing a bit of a mo­ment. The death of bass player Adam “MCA” Yauch due to can­cer in 2012 ba­si­cally brought an end to the band, but “Li­censed to Ill” or “Paul’s Bou­tique” will sound as good as they did in the 1980s on the room-fill­ing Wi-fi speaker de­signed by Mike D and Ad-rock with a cus­tom type­face from Barry Mcgee. Pro­ceeds from sales of the speaker will go to Peace Sis­ters and Lit­tle Kids Rock in the name of the Adam Yauch Foun­da­tion. The lim­ited edi­tion is priced at $499.

It’s not much of a sur­prise that Mar­ley wants to rent out his former Bev­erly Hills home, since late in 2017 he shelled out $5.5 mil­lion for a much larger, more op­u­lent man­sion of more than 9,300 square feet in a par­tic­u­larly plum cor­ner of the also celeb-swarmed Toluca Lake com­mu­nity, where some of his near­est A-list neigh­bors in­clude Steve Carell and Vi­ola Davis.
