Today the music world lost Adam Yauch aka MCA of the Beasties Boys to cancer. He was 47.
I was never a big Beastie Boys fan, not because I didn’t like them but because I never acclimated myself with their work outside of the hits.
Yes, everyone knows “Sabatoge,” “No Sleep Til Brooklyn” and “Fight For Your Right” (the same songs that I’m familiar with along with a few others.
Starting in the late 80’s, Beastie Boys took the music world by storm with their rap/rock combination. Many tried to imitate the sound but no one sounded like the Beastie Boys.
RIP MCA, a music legend, humanitarian and one of the last greats in hip hop history.
