Adam Yauch A.K.A. MCA of the Hip-Hop trio, the “Beastie Boys” passed away today after an almost 3 year battle with Cancer, at the age of 47. The Beastie Boys were one of the most important, trail-blazing and influential Hip-Hop groups of the late 80s and early 90s. They were the first ever White Hip-Hop act, paving the way for Vanilla Ice, Eminem, Bubba Sparxxx, Asher Roth and others. Some of their hits include “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!)”, “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” and “Intergalactic” (my personal favorite). They made music up through the 2000’s, with their now final album as a trio, “Hot Sauce Committee Part 2” being released just last year. They were also just inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last month. They are only the 3rd Rap act to ever be inducted. It’s great to know that he was able to be honored before his untimely passing. R.I.P. Adam “MCA” Yauch.
