RIP MCA-August 5, 1964 – May 4, 2012

May 4, 2012

Adam Yauch aka MCA of the Beastie Boys has died. He was 47 years old.

MCA co-founded Beastie Boys in 1979 with Mike D, and Ad Rock … and went on to churn out some of the most iconic albums in hip-hop … including License to Ill, Paul’s Boutique, Check Your Head and Ill Communication.

The group has won multiple Grammys and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.

The Beastie Boys haven’t performed live since 2009. MCA recently became a vegan at the recommendation of his Tibetan doctors.
Gone but never forgotten…

    Hip hop has lost one of its originals. During our clubhead days, he brought the FUNK and the Noise, and kept the joint jumpin’. Gonna miss him lots!
