    Today is a sad day for the world of hip-hop. 1/3 of the one of the greatest (if not the greatest) hip-hop groups ever has passed. While the details on Adam “MCA” Yauch’s death are scarce we think it’s safe to assume that his long battle with cancer is the culprit.
    What does this mean for music or hip-hop? Right now. It means nothing. MCA (with Mike D and King Ad Rock) fought for our right to party, and succeeded. While the group admittedly hated their most known song and refused to play it live, it was a game changer (much like everything else in the bands decade spanning career).
    What started off as hardcore punk band between Adam and Mike Diamond (Mike D) eventually involved into one of the most influencial and important hip-hop groups ever (Only comparable to Run DMC and N.W.A.).

    Very sad indeed. I thought he was getting better. Always loved the Beastie Boys. I believe I'll mark this occasion by posting my fave Beasties song

    I am not a fan of rap music overall.

    However, Paul's Boutique is one of my favorite albums ever and I always respected a couple of white jewish boys who were one of the most innovative groups in the genre.

    So Sad....

    Not a fan, but it's sad when someone dies young.

    Me neither, but I will jam out to the Beastie Boys and the Wu Tang Clan anytime, anywhere, no matter what I happen to be doing at the time
