BREAKING NEWS: Beastie Boys Member Adam “MCA” Yauch Dead At 47

(AllHipHop News) Beastie Boys member Adam “MCA” Yauch was pronounced dead at age 47.

The rapper was being treated for a cancerous parotid gland and a lymph node.

MCA’s actual cause of death has not been revealed.

MCA co-founded the Beastie Boys in 1979 with Mike D, Mix Master Mike, and Ad Roc.

He is survived by his wife and daughter.

Last month, The Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but MCA was not present at the ceremony in Cleveland.

  • Rest in beastie

  • Mix Master Mike was 9 years old in 1979.  He joined up later.

    In any case, there’s nobody like MCA.  He will be missed.

  • This hurts, no doubt about it. RIP Mr. Yauch. You will be missed.
