The New York Times recently published the clue “Wack, in hiph-hop” where the answer was supposed to be “illin’,” much to the surprise of writer Julieanne Smolinski who mailed puzzle creator Will Shortz to inform him he was misinformed. Shortz disagreed and said his interpretation was correct, an assessment Beastie Boy Mike D has a contending view on. The man with a license to ill went on ‘The Colbert Report’ last Thursday to set the record straight. Pretty ill (and funny).



1982 was when Jaap van der Doelen aka J.Monkey shot his way out his mom dukes. A mere two years later he was already battling Big Brother and The Illuminati. Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes (about music, mostly), hosts a radio show and designs graphics for a living. He lives in The Netherlands where he continues to be winning.
