R.I.P., Adam "MCA" Yauch

After a three year battle with cancer, Adam "MCA" Yauch of the immeasurably influential Beastie Boys has passed away at age 47. Ever since breaking through with 1986's License to Ill, the trio has defined and redefined what can be possible in the world of hip-hop. The band also went out of its way to branch out, releasing instrumental albums and even the wildly entertaining Awesome! I Fuckin' Shot That!, a film shot entirely by fans in the audience. Yauch was diagnosed with parotid gland tumor in 2009, and had been battling the disease ever since. In his later life, Yauch turned to Buddhism and spent countless hours towards humanitarian efforts. Adam will be missed.
