I didn't know until I read it on this messageboard. :(
MCA was my favorite Beastie Boy. Maybe that was mostly because he had a lower voice than Ad Rock and Mike D, so he sounded more the way I thought a rapper should.
And I liked the Beastie Boys back when I HATED rap. How could I not take exception to the Boys? So many of their raps, somehow, just put a smile on my face. Even today, I still sometimes listen to "Licensed to Ill", "To the 5 Boroughs", and about half the tracks in "The Sounds of Science". My favorite BB song is "The Negotiation Limerick File".
