    OT - MCA of Beastie Boys passes



    Don't know about a lot of you, but I grew up with these guys.

    Total pioneers in the music industry.

    47 years old. What a shame.

    Wow, pretty young. I like their stuff, you can tell they're doing most of it tongue-in-cheek. Hell, who would've thought 3 Jewish guys from Brooklyn could make rap CDs and people would actually buy them?

    Especially during the time when NWA and gangster rap was getting pretty big.


    These guys paved the way. No doubt about it.



    I'm sure this thread will get moved, but I figure there would probably be a fair amount of guys around my age who grew up on the Beasties.

    Paul's Boutique is still one of my top 5 albums of all time. That was a great album and a great group. It's quite alarming the amount of people in their 40's that have been passing away recently.

    Paul's Boutique was awesome. All of their stuff was great and way ahead of their time.

    License to Ill is one of my favs and honestly, so is Hello Nasty.

    I remember that too. We played the first side so much it wore out, that was before we ever got to the second side.

    Beastie Boys kicked ass. They were a big part of my teenage years.

    I remember in High school (pre cellphones) when people would ask what time is it, I'd always reply, "it's time to get ill". RIP MCA

    Read this earlier and am totally sick over it. I didn't realize the cancer came back. Last I heard he was saying he beat it a year ago. RIP MCA. Being near the same age and growing up Jewish in the NY area, the Beastie Boys were the guys we all wanted to be like. Cancer sucks!

    Very sad.

    Ill was one of the first CDs I ever bought and BB is still in heavy rotation on my iPod.

    But I did read that his cancer wasn't a contributing factor.

    Shame to see him go at such a young age. Their music came to me at the exact right(or wrong) time in my the teenage years. Hopefully they finished their final album.

    On a lighter note, anyone who hasn't seen this should definitely check it out. Its a funny promotionl video they released before their last album. Thought it was cool that all the stars in it donated their time.

    It's horrible that someone ( time and time again ) this young has died from such a horrible disease. Hopefully in the next 15-20 years genomic specialized cancer treatments will be in full effect giving anyone with cancer a better chance of getting it cured. Bioscience industry has come a long way to cure people like MCA, including the production of an ( comparatively speaking ) inexpensive genome. Genomics is the future of medicine people, it's just too bad it's not far advanced enough to have saved another life, MCA or the kid down the block dying of Leukemia.
    With that said, it's scary how a cancer like throat/mouth cancer can metastasize like MCA's did. I'm sure none of us have the real scoop on it, however, it's a damn shame that people day in and day out have to suffer with this horrendous disease.
