RIP Adam Yauch (MCA)

After a long battle with cancer, Adam Yauch (MCA) founding member of the Beastie Boys, has passed away. He was one of the most influential artists in hip hop history. Along with Mike D, Ad-Rock and Mix Master Mike, the Beastie Boys were icons of our generation. We’ll all remember listening to Licensed to Ill for the first time… and the hundredth time.

And lest we forget when the boys dropped The 5 Boroughs in 2004, celebrating a the city they loved post 9/11, and New Yorkers started tapping their feet just a little more in in the streets.

Beyond his music, Adam was an advocate for the less fortunate and disenfranchised, everything the Chivers stand for. RIP, MCA, we’ll see you in another dimension.

    Well if you battle me I will revile
    People always say my style is wild
    You've got gall, you've got guile
    To step to me I'm a rap-o-phile

    One of my ALL TIME favorite lyrics…………….made me smile everytime.

    Adam is jammin' and showin off his lyrical rhyme skill up above.



    I really hope everyone starts posting some lyrics of his………….

    My name is MCA I got a license to ill…-RIP Adam
    You forever marked my high school years dances!

  • Chive_On

    Prolly shows my age, but wtf. I have a tape of some of their punk around somewhere, and as others have said, Licensed to Ill was my first CD bought.

    Hell, they were the first group I had seen that allowed you to download tracks from their website!

    They've had a certain influence over a generation of music listeners, and the world's just gonna suck even more because the artists these days are too fucking cookie cutter to replace them. RIP MCA
