Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch (“MCA”) dead at 47

The Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 after discovering a tumor in his parotid gland. He performed as MCA along with fellow Beasties’ Mike Diamond (“Mike D”) and Adam Horowitz (“Ad-Rock”). Last month the Beastie Boys were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but he wasn’t able to attend in the ceremony due to his illness.

Rest in peace, MCA!
