    Sad news indeed.

    The Beasties didn't do a lot of recording, the guys tended to prefer to do something they were happy with unlike most hip hop acts who fart out any old shit every year and killing their legacy.

    Here's some greats:

    Such a shame, I knew he had cancer but he was truly talented.

    RIP, I'll make sure to listen to some of the classics in memory.

    That's some pretty sad news; I hadn't heard about his cancer, so this was pretty sudden. The world is left short one Beastie Boy today...

    I know it makes me sound like Uncle Rico from Napolean Dynamite, but their isn't much I wouldn't give to go back to 1988, hanging out after classes with my friends playing pingpong in our rented house and smoking that stuff I don't smoke anymore, listening to Beastie Boys, NWA, Biz Markie, etc.

    RIP, MCA. Damn.

    The Beastie Boys have transcended the musical spectrum throughout their 20+ year career, using a mixture of punk, rock and hip hop to make some of the most memorable music of the 80's. Their music just wouldn't be the same without MCA, I hope they managed to complete Hot Sauce Committee part 1 before Adam passed away. May his legend live on through their music.
