Adam Yauch aka MCA has died at age 47 from a three-year battle with cancer. Back in 2009, the founding member of Beastie Boys, one of the true innovators of rap/rock, announced that the group would cancel their shows because a tumor had been discovered in his parotid gland.
The world has lost a legend and everyone is weeping for his demise. He will surely be missed as his contributions are unparalleled.
