Among the celebrities to reflect on the life of Adam “MCA” Yauch were Questlove, Ludacris, Ice-T.
Rapper/singer Tonedeff said, “License to Ill was the first album I ever paid for. It was because of the Beastie Boys that I began rhyming. I owe my entire existence as am emcee to the pioneering work MCA, Adrock and Mike D did. MCA was the soul of that group. He was always looking to infuse some topical depth into the typically over-the-top/randomness of the BB style. My ipod stays with Paul’s Boutique in rotation.”
