We've talked quit a bit about how Roy Choi is taking over the world as of late—from launching a restaurant and bar at Koreatown's The Line hotel to playing an integral role in Jon Favreau's food-centric film Chef and starring in his own show on CNN—the latter of which just released its first episode online.

The first subject is none other than Mike D of the Beastie Boys, who are so often associated with Brooklyn. But during their chat over some seafood in the 'Bu, Mike D tells Choi why L.A. living is so awesome, and how it's influenced the Beastie Boys' and Portugal The Man's music.

Seems that food really does bring out the best in everyone. You can watch their conversation below:
