One of my favorite MC’s, Adam “MCA” Yauch, passed away today after a 3-year battle with cancer. The cause of his death is unknown as of now, but Yauch went public when he revealed he had cancer in a salivary gland in his neck back in July of 2009. If you don’t know, Yauch is one of the founding members of the legendary hip-hop group The Beastie Boys, this year was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which Yauch was unable to attend. He is survived by his wife and daughter. He will truly be missed.
