Adam “MCA” Yauch beats down Cancer
Founding [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beastie Boys[/lastfm] member [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adam “MCA” Yauch[/lastfm] has responded to widespread reports that he has beaten his battle with cancer. In an official statement, the rapper calls the reports “exaggerated” and says that he is still undergoing treatment for throat cancer.
“While I’m grateful for all the positive energy people are sending my way, reports of my being totally cancer free are exaggerated,” Yauch says in a statement. “I’m continuing treatment, staying optimistic and hoping to be cancer free in the near future.”
Rumors that Yauch had beaten the illness spread last week following an interview with his fellow Beastie [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Mike D[/lastfm]. While speaking with the BBC, Mike commented on Yauch’s progress, saying “it’s a good thing” and the group is “really happy about it.”
The Beastie Boys are set to release their new album Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 next spring.
