‘MCA’ Adam Yauch Dies at 47 from Cancer
Adam “MCA” Yauch, Michael “Mike D” Diamond and Adam “Ad-Rock” Horowitz formed the Beastie Boys in 1979, starting off as a punk band and later transitioned to hip-hop in 1984. The threesome released their debut album, Licensed to Ill, in 1986, noted as Columbia Records’ ”fastest-selling debut record to date and sold over 9 million copies.” (from spinner)
This is totally a sad day in hip hop. I’m gonna be making a mix of some of the best Beastie Boys Tracks soon in respect to MCA.
In the meantime heres my fav joint… RIP
