As Def Sounds reported earlier today, Hip Hop lost a pioneer and one of the founding members of the legendary rap group the Beastie Boys, Adam Yauch aka MCA, as he lost his battle with cancer at age 47.

With the impact Adam Yauch and his group had on Hip Hop, it’s only right to take some time out of your day to pay homage and celebrate the life of the late emcee and watch some classic music videos from the legendary group Beastie Boys.

R.I.P. Adam Yauch aka MCA (August 5, 1964 – May 4, 2012)
