    Updated 2:30 p.m. PT: Adam Yauch, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year with his pioneering rap trio Beastie Boys and founded the indie film company Oscilloscope Pictures, has died. He was 47. His longtime representatives confirmed the news this afternoon

    "It is with great sadness that we confirm that musician, rapper, activist and director Adam 'MCA' Yauch, founding member of Beastie Boys ... passed away in his native New York City this morning after a near-three-year battle with cancer," a statement on the group's website said


    One of the few "Rock Rap" artist that I listen to. "Sabotage" is my favorite followed by "Intergalctic".

    It was a shame really.

    47 is still quite young.

    Welcome back GH. Your return here would not have anything to do with the release of the new Hobbit movie would it?
