GlobalGrind.com, music mogul Russell Simmon’s website, reports that MCA died after a long battle with cancer. He was 47.
In 2009, Yauch announced he was being treated for a cancerous parotid gland and a lymph node. He has since undergone surgery and radiation therapy. Yauch is survived by his wife, Dechen Wengdu, and their daughter, Losel.
The cause of death is still unknown.
Prayers go out to his family! R.I.P
