Breaking News: Beastie Boys’ Rapper MCA Dead at 47
Beastie Boys’ rapper MCA, real name Adam Yauch, has died.
MCA announced he was being treated for a cancerous parotid gland and a lymph node back in 2009. He has since undergone surgery and radiation therapy.
So far, it’s not clear if the death is related to the rapper’s battle with cancer.
MCA co-founded Beastie Boys in 1979 with Mike D, and Ad Rock … and went on to churn out some of the most iconic albums in hip-hop … including License to Ill, Paul’s Boutique, Check Your Head and Ill Communication.
The group has won multiple Grammys and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.
The Beastie Boys haven’t performed live since 2009.
MCA recently became a vegan at the recommendation of his Tibetan doctors.
