“Beastie Boys” rapper MCA, whose real name is Adam Yauch has died at age 47.

Youch was one of the three white rappers that made up the “Beastie Boys”.  The rap rocker was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 after discovering a tumor in his salivary gland.

Youch was unable to join the group as they were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and his treatments delayed the release of the groups most recent album “Hot Sauce Committe, pt 2″, according to 24HourHipHop.com.

So far, it’s not clear if the death is related to the rapper’s battle with cancer.
