    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.

    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!

    This sucks! Junior Seau. MCA. These guys are my age........ I grew up on the Beasties, they're part of the soundtrack of my life. Definitely gonna hug the kids tonight & let the people I love know that I'm thinking of them.

    License To Ill is still in my car's CD changer. Hasn't come out in over a decade.

    Man I loved these guys as a young kid growing up in the 90's, in a decade when rap was actually good. R.I.P.

    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.
