The Beastie Boys were induced into the Hall of Fame in April, but Yauch was not in attendance. The Hip-Hop legend has been ill for a while and his ailing health delayed the release of the Beastie Boys’ recent album, “Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2.

The rapper was diagnosed with cancer in 2009, forcing the Beastie Boys to cancel their upcoming tours at the time and pushing back the release of their album “Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 1.” He revealed his cancer diagnosis via YouTube in July of 2009, saying that he noticed swollen glands in his throat several months prior.

The Beastie Boys dropped a single “Fight for Your Right To Party” from their debut album “Licensed to Ill,” in 1986. The single was a hit and the album sold more than 750,000 copies in the first six weeks of its release. The group went on to become one of the most influential rap groups in Hip-Hop history.

The Beastie Boys formed in 1981 as a punk rock band. The founding members were Adam Yauch (MCA) Kate Schellenbach, Mike D (Mike Diamond) and Ad-Rock (Adam Keefe Horovitz).

Yauch is survived by his wife Dechen Wangdu, and their daughter, Tenzin Losel Yauch, according to the New York Times.
