Adam Yauch, MCA of The Beastie Boys has passed away.

After a long battle with throat cancer, founding member of the massively influential hip-hop/funk/hardcore band The Beastie Boys, MCA has passed away. Before there was Eminem or Mac Miller or Macklemore there was MCA, Ad Rock and Mike D. Rest in peace, his contributions to modern music and the art of sampling will forever be remembered.
