Way back when I was young, thin and rebellious one of the very first bands I chose for myself was The Beastie Boys. With their white-boy rap sound mixed with rock and lyrics that appealed to the bad a&% I thought I was, Mike D., Ad-Rock, and MCA lyrically solidified themselves forever as musical geniuses in my book. Today I join the millions of Beastie Boy fans who are brokenhearted as we bid a fond farewell to Beastie co-founder, Adam “MCA” Yauch. MCA passed away earlier today, May 4th 2012, due to complications from cancer.
May you continue to spin ill beats in the afterlife.
MCA directed Intergalactic under an assumed name in 1998 and the song won them one of their three Grammys.
Here’s another of my favorites Sabotage.
