It’s Bonnaroo 2009. The Beastie Boys are headlining. No one knew anything was wrong.
This will be the last time that The Beastie Boys play together. Adam Yauch (MCA) was soon be diagnosed with cancer. Yauch was an American rapper, musician, film director (Nathaniel Hornblower), and human rights activist. He was best known as a founding member of the hip hop group Beastie Boys, of course.
This was part of the statement released after his death on May 5, 2012.
“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.”
