Music Monday: Beastie Boys

May 14, 2012

Many of you know, just a few weeks after Beastie Boys were inducted into the Music Hall of fame, MCA (Adam Yauch) has died of cancer. The 47 year old rapper had been battling cancer of the parotid salivary gland for three years.

I was first introduced to the Beastie Boys by my older cousins. They played Fight For Your Right constantly and I was immediately smitten. I just had to buy their tape Licensed to Ill, and would not rest until it was in my grubby little hands. My one sided love affair with Beastie Boys continued throughout the years, right up to The Mix Up and beyond.

Obviously, today’s Music Monday post is dedicated to the Beastie Boys in general and MCA in particular.
