Everybody knows that Beastie Boy Adam Yauch succumbed to cancer on Friday (May 4), but fewer seem to know exactly what he was up against. The rapper’s three-year battle began in 2009 with a rare diagnosis: he had malignant tumors in the parotid gland, one of the salivary glands near the jaw and the ear, that had spread to the nearby lymph node. Not the best news, but he remained hopeful.

The tributes keep rolling in for Adam “MCA” Yauch. Friday night’s (May 4) Red Hot Chili Peppers concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., was dedicated by the band to the late, great Beastie Boy, who passed away earlier that day after a three-year battle with cancer — and, as reported by Billboard, honored him in the most poignant of ways.
