News__ Our Hearts Go Out

July 20, 2009 | By

We regretfully announce that MCA of the Beastie Boys (a.k.a. Adam Yauch) has been diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his left salivary gland. Early detection shows that the tumor is confined to a small area and can be surgically treated. Luckily the cancer hasn't localized close to his vocal chords and is said not to affect the rappers voice. The 44 year old MC will undergo treatment immediately, forcing the group to postpone all upcoming concert appearances and the release of their upcoming album Hot Sauce Committee Part 1. Our heartfelt thoughts and wishes for a speedy recovery go out to him and his family.
