The New York Times reports that the two remaining Beastie Boys, Mike D and Ad-Rock, are planning on penning a memoir of the group’s story, in collaboration with hip-hop scribe Sasha Jenkins, due 2015.

The as-of-yet untitled project (No Sleep Til Brooklyn? Rhymin’ & Stealin’?) will not be a straight-forward autobiography, but will instead be a loose-knit narrative, told in their voices, alongside other contributors and other media, as the duo are “interested in challenging the form and making the book a multidimensional experience. “There is a kaleidoscopic frame of reference, and it asks a reader to keep up,” according to Julie Grau, the publisher of Spiegel & Grau, the house which also published Jay-Z’s Decoded.

The book will reportedly be presented in a similar fashion to their long-defunct magazine, Grand Royal, according to their agent Luke Janklow. “The first words out of Mike’s mouth were, ‘I don’t want to do a straight memoir,’” Janklow told the New York Times. The idea for the project was initially hatched many years ago, before Adam Yauch was diagnosed with cancer.
