In Memorium: Adam Yauch 1964-2012
In Memorium: Adam Yauch 1964-2012

When I got the news alert that Beastie Boys' co-founder Adam "MCA" Yauch had lost his battle with cancer, I didn't know how to immediately react. While he was diagnosed with cancer over 3 years ago, I always believed that Yauch would beat it. I soon realized that we'd lost a true pioneer, innovator, and legend not only in the hip-hop world but in all of music. I never met the man, but I'd be lying to you if I didn't say that his group, NYC's Beastie Boys, didn't impact my life. It was 1998's Hello Nasty that helped an awkward middle school Drew find some inner confidence and the ability to laugh at one's self. That album begun the obsession, as I delved into their back catalog and made immediate connections to such classics as Licensed to Ill and Paul's...[read more]

The license to ill has officially expired but no...you didn't retire
Your ill communication says goodbye nasty, spitting rhymes with that voice so raspy
To the 5 Boroughs to Paul's Boutique where Hot Sauce Committee's across the street
Blasting that Boombox and so it's been said, playin' so loud you gotta check your head
The show is over there is no encore, I'll see you in heaven when you go on tour
Thank you Adam from back in the day, we'll always love you MCA

Nicely put Drew. I can't even recall when the death of an entertainer has so greatly impacted me. I was, and still am, incredibly shocked over his passing. Much like yourself, I really felt he was gonna beat cancer and come out swinging with new projects. I'm happy to see people really taking notice of how talented he truly was.

Great and heartfelt post. I'm not trying to be a dick, but this section: "I'd be lying to you if I didn't say that his group, NYC's Beastie Boys, didn't impact my life" means you would be lying if you said the Beastie Boys impacted your life. I'm sure that's not what you meant.

An easy fix would be "I'd be lying to you if I said that his group, NYC's Beastie Boys, didn't impact my life".

Anyway, great post and MCA left a fantastic legacy.

NBA recently appeared many old guy “hold thigh”, such as ray Allen “cabbage price” to join the heat, such as lewis “rock bottom price” to Miami, these had walked into the career of the years before the star, want to get a championship rings on two MEDALS, then willing to “wash feet ashore”. Veterans in the “Chinese cabbage” Cheap customized jerseys price under the set, and griffin this five years 95 million big contract, it is day price, estimates that Allen as they saw the news will dim concern: young is very good! Young really good! Look at the two seasons, griffin foot as in “bang bounce shoes” sort, the leap between people Authentic custom jerseys is to repeat dunks-young he perfect interpretation “violence aesthetics”, and a popular high, is considered the durant, Ross after, alliance, a new generation of potential superstars.

Because of this, the very tight best jerseys at all with griffin, it’s news that the Authentic personalized jerseys lakers to pull the introduction. So under pressure, the clippers will keep its contract with day more criticism, because “to force Finn” is the clippers today, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. But, after the successful contract griffin, the clippers not may have nothing worry about. Because next year, is another take charge of their star Paul contract year. In other news, the preparation and the clippers to talk of Paul 5 years $108 million contract.

Imagine if Paul contract next year, his salary will probably in the Authentic customized jerseys $20 million (or above), plus the day price contract also in griffin take effect next year, so light is Paul and griffin two people’s Cheap personalized jerseys salary, about to go to more than $36 million. Suddenly the clippers salary cap space will become very limited (union salary cap is about $58.04 million), this also then means, the clippers and if you can’t pay the luxury tax, so they sign other competitive players of Cheap custom jerseys the space is quite narrow. So, the lakers neighbors if really want to learn the lakers impact a championship, they is still a long way to go.
