KRS-One has apologized to Beastie Boys' Ad-Rock after accidentally naming him, and not his band mate Adam "MCA" Yauch, in KRS-One's tribute to late rappers, "Hip Hop Speaks From Heaven."

On KRS-One's track, off his new LP The World Is Mind, the rapper says, "Like a late fog in the mist / I see King Ad-Rock and rest in peace Nate Dogg / Their names and their natures will last."

On Twitter Saturday, KRS-One owned up to the error, "sincerely apologized" to Ad-Rock and promised to rework the song to mention the proper Beastie Boy.

"I mistakably paid respect and condolences to the wrong Beastie Boy member King
