Very sad - usually when you hear about a relatively young person getting cancer you think they will just go through treatment and come back.

I know it wasn't a huge album for them, but if you listen to "To the 5 Burroughs" it's a great album. It was a 2004 album paying tribute to NY and 9/11 but at the same time rallying against the Iraq War (before it was popular to do so) and George Bush's policies, love that album.

I wonder if they will ever release the album they put on suspension when MCA got sick, I hope so.

I hate that disease.  It's taken too many.

I just purchased their new album, which I think is really good, and reminds me of their classic stuff.  RIP MCA.  47 is too young.

Always extremely sad when someone of that age dies of such a shitty disease. RIP. Loved beastie boys music growing up, hello nasty must have been one of the first albums I bought.

Now my name is M.C.A. - I've got a license to kill
I think you know what time it is - it's time to get ill
Now what do we have here - an outlaw and his beer
I run this land, you understand - I make myself clear."

I did not know how much he was into the film and directing side of things. He will be missed. RIP.
Way too young!
