"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. 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 GlobalGrind.com first reported the death. We have spoken to people independently connected to the rapper who also say he is dead.Yauch co-founded Beastie Boys in 1979 with Mike D, Mix Master Mike, and Ad Roc. The group has won multiple Grammys.Yauch became a vegan at the recommendation of his Tibetan doctors.Yauch is survived by his wife and daughter. He was 47.

RIP Adam "MCA" Yauch. You were a part of a group that was the foundation for my love of music. A leader for social progress. A Noble man.

My thoughts are with his family and friends, as well as with the many amazing beastie fans that have been touched by him.

That's as much as I can come up with right now, kinda speechless

Loss for words. Sad sad day.

So, so sad right now. Didn't even know until my girlfriend called and was like "I'm so sorry babe", I was thinking who on earth could she be talking about, I thought my old gradpa had passed or something. I couldn't, and still almost cannot believe it. Word to my boy Milkboy009 for being support on this one. Today is going to be tough because 99.9% of people I know will not understand the real loss I feel. I did get the pleasure and absolute honor of meeting MCA and telling him personally how much his music has affected my life and brought joy to me, and for that I will be forever grateful. My sincere thoughts and prayers go out to his family and to Adam and Mike, and the rest of the crew. A sad day, but Yauch lived life to the fullest and really seemed to be at peace in his life. What a man. Still cannot believe it.

It was 4:20am when I saw Q-Tip post saying RIP Yauch. This is the saddest piece of news I have ever heard, theres no way im gonna be able to sleep tonight.

RIP to one of my favorite rappers of ALL time. Still can not believe it. Thoughts go out too all the familys and friends.

Most of all thanks to Yauch for your music being stuck in my head for years an keeping my mind occupied in hard shit times.

Been down with the Beasties since She's on it, and now I can't believe I'll never see them perform again. So sad for MCA's family and friends...

I'm falling apart.


Thank you Adam Yauch for everything you have done. You and Mike and Adam are the reason I am the person I am today.

You will be missed so much.


...I can't even think right now.

Adam Yauch has been one of the biggest influences on my life to date.
I really don't know what to say right now, besides the obvious fact that I, along with many others, are so very saddened to hear this.
My deepest condolences to his family, the boys, and anybody else whose lives he has touched.

Rest in Peace, Adam...we love you.

This is the first time I've felt so devastated about the loss of a celebrity I didn't know. I was lucky enough to see MCA twice in the East Village when I lived there, another time at a rally for Tibet, and another time at the Tibetan Freedom Concert. So sad for his family and the other two B Boys. And everyone generally. We lost someone great today.

Thank you, Adam, for everything you have given me. All I can give to you in return is my never-ending love and respect. You are a true hero, MCA.

Much love,

rest in peace yauch. i had the privilege of meeting you. your life will be celebrated.

Re: TMZ : "YAUCH DEAD"
 
I am absolutely numb inside.

Adam was not only a complete and utter genius and a massively inspirational musician but also a genuine and honest person.

The fact that he would come on to these boards and shoot the shit with all of us obsessed losers like we were all just hanging out with him down the pub is testament to what a kind-hearted and accepting soul he was.

My condolences to Adam H, Mike D, MMM and all those associated with the band and of course Adam's family and friends. Without the influence of Adam and the Beastie Boys' music I probably never would've learned to play bass, have such varied taste in music or turned out to be a decent human being.

Adam, you will be sorely missed but we will always have your music to remember you by.


R.I.P.
