Rapper Adam Yauch (right), perhaps better known to Beastie Boys fans as MCA, has reportedly passed away at age 47. Russell Simmons' GlobalGrind.com first reported the news:
"Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys has passed.  GlobalGrind is confirming this very sad news.  One of our heroes, Adam Yauch aka MCA of the Beastie Boys has passed this morning after a long bout with cancer. 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 doctors and is survived by his wife and daughter. He was 47.
Our prayers go out to the family of Adam and the entire Beastie Boys crew."
Yauch was diagnosed with cancer of the parotid (salivary) gland in 2009. The Beastie Boys released Hot Sauce Committee Part Two in 2011 and were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this year.
