RIP Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch

Hip Hop Legend Adam Yauch (aka MCA) of the Beastie Boys has died from throat cancer. Rolling Stone, who just published a confirmed report based on “a very credible spokesperson” has confirmed that this news is indeed sadly true.  When Yauch was diagnosed three years ago he made a video to announce the throat cancer and its implications in the Beastie Boys’ then impending tour and record release - Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2. - which both got postponed until last year. At the time of the 2009 video announcement however, the Beastie Boy was good humored and making jokes about it all and clearly confident that the throat cancer was “treatable” as he was told by doctors at the time. Read more from Rolling Stone here. Adam Yauch  was 47. Rest in peace!
