Beastie Boys Adam Yauch Dies After Battling Cancer - First White Rap Group.
Adam Yauch, who performed under the stage name MCA, is dead, according to reports from Global Grind and TMZ.
MCA's publicist just released a statement to TMZ, writing: "It is with great sadness that we confirm that musician, rapper, activist and director Adam 'MCA' Yauch ... passed away in his native New York City this morning after a near-three-year battle with cancer. He was 47 years old."
In July 2009, the Beastie Boys member announced that he would be receiving treatment for a cancerous tumor in his salivary gland, and that, as a result, the group would cancel some future shows and push back the release of a new album.
In 2011 it was erroneously reported that Yauch had beaten the disease. On the band's website he wrote:
"Hello My Friends While I'm grateful for all the positive energy people are sending my way, reports of my being totally cancer free are exaggerated. I'm continuing treatment, staying optimistic and hoping to be cancer free in the near future."
