Today is a very sad day in the world of music… Adam Yauch, better known as MCA of The Beastie Boys, passed today at age 47. As of now the actual cause of death is unknown, but may have been an effect of the cancerous tumor he was diagnosed with in 2009. MCA‘s role in The Beastie Boys, had a huge influence and impact on hip-hop and pop music today. MCA was a good man who believed in peace, buddhism, and fought for the rights of Tibetan citizens, which lead to the founding of the Tibetan Freedom Concerts. On a happier note, its pretty great that he got to experience the induction of The Beastie Boys into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame this year.
MCA, we thank you for all of your hard work, knowledge, and influence. May you R.I.P.
In remembrance watch…
Felix the Hat,
Live Music City, high hopes!
