MCA R.I.P. (August 5, 1964 – May 4, 2012)

"Born and bred Brooklyn - U.S.A.

They all me Adam Yauch - but I'm M.C.A.

Like a lemon to a lime - a lime to a lemon

I sip the def ale with all the fly women"

This is so sad. Adam Yauch passed away today. MCA and the Beastie Boys, along with Run DMC, LL, and the whole Def Jam movement, were responsible for sparking my love of Hip-Hop. Both Licenced To Ill and Paul's Boutique are among my all time favourite albums. Another legend gone. Cancer's a bitch.

Z-Trip does the Beastie Boys and MCA justice in his mega mix below.
Essential listening for today.
