Adam Yauch Dead @ 47

The End is truly nigh.

Adam Yauch also known as MCA of the Beastie Boys has died at age 47. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 after a tumor was discovered in his salivary gland, however it is unknown at this time if that was the cause of death.

I told myself I wouldn’t post anymore about musical celebrity death, however someone who has been influential to Hip Hop as much as Tupac or Biggie is worth mentioning (most kids these days wouldn’t know anything about that and most adults won’t admit it).

Given today is May 4th “Star Wars” Day, all I can say is that he has become one with The Force and may The Force with him…always.

 

Yauch is survived by his wife and daughter.
