Adam MCA Yauch dies age 47 :(
Adam Yauch, the gravel-voiced co-founder of Grammy-winning hip-hop giants the Beastie Boys, died Friday after a three-year battle with cancer, the band's publicists said.
The 47-year-old, better known by his stage name MCA and who also supported Tibetan rights, died weeks after the pioneering white hip-hop act were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, although he was too ill to attend.
"It is with great sadness that we confirm that musician, rapper, activist and director Adam "MCA" Yauch .. passed away in his native New York City this morning after a near-three-year battle with cancer," said a statement.
Man this was a shiter to wake up to. Genuinely one of my favorite groups ever.
