I'm Down was actually deleted from the album Licensed to Ill in 1986/1987, not Ill Communication. Since Michael Jackson owns the Beatles catalog, he wouldn't license the Beatles sample to the Beasties. Irony being that Paul's Boutique uses two Beatles samples in Droppin' Science in 1989.

Scenario was a blatent ripoff of Schooly D's PSK, and Drum Machine was a 1985 Oberheim DMX driven song by Burzootie that featured rhymes from MCA. Lots of edits and flange effects; mid-tempo electro fans will especially like this track.
