Man, tough to watch the RnR HOF Induction tonight on HBO with Adam's recent passing without shedding a tear. Very nice tribute to the Beasties though (they didn't perform themselves).

Thanks to MCA for bringing so much exuberant joy into my life through your music. I've never had a bad day the Beastie Boys couldn't rap away. Positive, progressive and unstinting love radiated from MCA. A consistent supporter of Free Tibet, MCA brought the Dharma to the west with his Bodhisattva's Vow. You have all my respect and admiration for a life well lived in a state of constant spiritual and music evolution. You rocked the sure shot.

When I hear of something that an artists do that i dont agree with I try to separate the art from the artist. maybe you call it burying ones head in the sand, but it saves some aggravation on my part.

Sad that someone so young has passed, yes 47 can be young and you'll realize as you start to reach that age, it's all in your outlook. We can only take solace in the art that he and the other Beastie Boys left for us. Godspeed MCA.

I had recently gotten some instrumental lps by the Beasties called "The Mix up" and 'Sounds from the way out'(?). They are both excellent albums with a real 70s sounding funk groove. I dont think The Beastie boys got credit for being good musicians. i wish they had leaned more toward that sound instead of rap, but thats just me. I liked the first 3 hip hop records they did, but then I started losing interest in them until I heard these funky jazz lps.

Very sad news. I'm bummed. I can't wait to get out of work so I can crank some Beasties in his memory.

That's sad ;o(. R.I.P. (I thought it might be about record label co. at first too).

I love when the song "Sabotage" plays in the newest star trek movie, when a very young James T.Kirk steals his parents car and teaches himself to drive. That got my heart pumping!

Say "Hi" to Jay in the great whateverafter, Yauch.

How many playground reprimands did I get for reciting "Paul Revere"? The part of me that's forever a 12 year wannabe B-boy is heartbroken right now.

"Beastie Boys" rapper MCA -- real name Adam Yauch -- has died.

In 2009, MCA announced he was being treated for a cancerous parotid gland and a lymph node (below). 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.

Russell Simmons' website first reported the death. We have spoken to people independently connected to the rapper who also say he is dead.

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.

The Beastie Boys' most recent music video was released last year for the song "Make Some Noise" -- and it stars a laundry list of A-listers, including Rashida Jones, Will Arnett, Rainn Wilson, Amy Poehler, Steve Buscemi, Kirsten Dunst, Zach Galifianakis, Orlando Bloom, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, and Jack Black.

Yauch is survived by his wife and daughter. He was 47.
