Beastie Boys' MCA Dead at 47

Adam Yauch, also known as MCA of the Beastie Boys; legends, pioneers and innovators who always remained open  to push the envelope of this hip-hop game. Yauch was not only an emcee, but also played a damn good bass and produced with his brothers in his group. Back in 2009, the public learned about the artist's battle with cancer. After going through treatmeant, the word was that things started to look more positive, but unfortunately today he lost the battle and returned to the essence. Through his large catalouge, which includes amazing albums like "Check Your Head" and "Paul's Boutique", his legacy will continue to live on; Rest in peace Adam Yauch. Check out these choice words from Rakim about MCA's and Beastie Boys' importance to hip-hop.

"There have been a lot of people who have molded the face and history of Hip Hop over the years, but no one can deny that my three dudes from New York City were paramount in taking it from a local thing and breaking it world wide. Last saw my man at the [Vh1] Hip Hop Honors Awards and he was upbeat, gracious and spiritual as always. R.I.P. to MCA...see you in the next one, brother." - Rakim
