Adam Yauch , or MCA to others, passed away of cancer yesterday aged just 47. As one of the founding members of The Beastie Boys, he was part of one of the most influential groups in music history. Their fusion of Hip-Hop, Rock, Pop, Reggae and Funk opened up fan’s eyes to a variety of different genres and they were truly originals. Yauch was definitely the best rapper, in my opinion. His flow was brilliant and he held the group together. He also directed films and was a record producer. His legacy will live on, as will that of The Beastie Boys. R.I.P and thanks for the amazing music.
