After a long bout with cancer, the Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch died on Friday (May 4). The rapper’s death comes as a huge blow to fans of his work with the iconic trio, but he’ll also be remembered for the imprint he left on the film world.
While he’s widely known as a co-founder of the Brooklyn hip-hop group, MCA was an accomplished director and producer, and his music is featured on an array of popular music soundtracks. The Hollywood community took to Twitter this afternoon to share their thoughts, with Ben Stiller tweeting, “So sad that Adam Yauch is gone. A truly great musician & filmmaker. He stood for integrity as an artist. What a loss. He was a very good man.” While Jonah Hill followed up with a heartfelt tweet: “I’m filled with so much sorrow to hear about the world losing Adam Yauch. He was such a beautiful person and artist. My heart is broken.”
