Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys has passed from cancer at the age of 47. Known as MCA, Yauch was diagnosed with the debilitating disease in 2009 after doctors discovered a tumor in his salivary gland.
Yauch and the Beastie Boys were one of the first hip-hop groups to gain notoriety in the early 1980s and were often viewed as a wilder version of Run-D.M.C. The Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April.–amir shaw
