you were an idol and an inspiration.
About an hour before I heard the news I was driving into work listening to "No Sleep Till Brooklyn". So sad. RIP MCA.
Aw man....I knew it was coming but damn....I was kinda hoping it wouldn't happen, y'know? Looks like I'll be spending the evening watching my Criterion Beastie Boys video collection.
You will be missed, MCA.
That was the one who I knew who he was. The other two dudes I was never sure which one was which.
Growing up, and this may be a surprise given my current disdain of most rap (and music), I was a huuuuuuuuge Beastie Boys and Run DMC fan. Summer camp was good fun during those days with the music we'd have back in the bunks.
A sad day.
Dang, that's sad. I'm gonna watch Fight For Your Right Revisited in his honor, since I haven't seen it yet.
Heard this on the radio. RIP
actually started crying at lunch.
To say the least, the guy was a huge influence on my young mind. For a kid who was so in to music that was pushed as a solely minority centric, MCA and the Beastie Boys showed that you didn't have to be a black guy to be ill. Without a doubt they got me started on my own journey into hip hop, and though my appreciation for hip hop often sways in other directions, I could always go back and listen to them and appreciate where they were coming from.
Very sad. I remember in Jr High when they hit the scene. There was nothing else like it at the time. Of course the music was sophomoric then but so were we. Loved seeing their trajectory over the years.
Heard on Facebook from my cousin. Too bad :/ RIP
Sad news indeed. RIP
I'm seriously bummed out in the biggest way. Thought he was doing much better.
"Now, here's a little story I'd like to tell about three bad brothers you know so well
It started way back in history with King Ad-Rock, MCA and me, Mike D..."
RIP, MCA. You helped make my teenage years fun.
