Adam Yauch- Beastie Boys Dead

Adam Yauch, one-third of the hip-hop group the Beastie Boys, has died at the age of 48.

Yauch had been battling cancer since about 2009. It was previously widley reported that he had beaten the cancer but a press release in 2011 on the band's website stated differently.

"Hello My Friends While I’m grateful for all the positive energy people are sending my way, reports of my being totally cancer free are exaggerated. I’m continuing treatment, staying optimistic and hoping to be cancer free in the near future."

Although the cause of death is still not know at this time it is assumed to be related to the cancer.
