A Sad Day For Hip Hop 05-04-12

Bad news is bad news no matter how you receive it.  This morning I woke up a grabbed the iPhone like each and every morning.  Clicked on Instagram to see whats good.  The first thing I saw was an image of MCA from The Beastie Boys, underneath it saying Rest In Peace……  I dropped my phone in disbelief.  I could believe that he had passed.  I knew he had cancer and thought he was doing somewhat well.  Today, at the young age of 47 Adam MCA Yauch passed away.  Today we lost a great. 

MCA & The Beastie Boys have been a big part of my youth, young adulthood, and still to this day their music has moved me.  I can’t believe I have been able to write this much.  I am still at a loss.  Just the other day I lost another one of my hero’s Junior Seau.  Now MCA???  

I had already completed my weekly Mind Tactics Show and was ready to send it off to in New Jersey, and to !)2.7 Da Bomb here in Hawaii before I received the news.  That previously recorded show will not air on either station.  Rather, my dedication to MCA and The Beastie Boys will.  Thank you to both station for holding me down and letting me work past deadlines to bring the best, most current show possible..  Below you will find a few pics, my playlist for the mix, and the download link.  Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by my blog.  I am truly blessed to have family, friends, colleagues, and supports.  I love you all.  Be safe..
