Adam Yauch was a founding member of the Beastie Boys and pioneer in not only the genre of rap, but music in general. In 2009 he publicly announced that he was being treated for cancer and it’s likely contributed to his death at age 47. I’ve been a huge fan of the Beastie Boys since as long as I can remember, so I can really only say that the music industry lost one of the greats today.

Rest in Peace.
