| Filed under: Music Minute

Phew!!

We were extremely upset to hear last year that Beastie Boys rapper Adam "MCA" Yauch was diagnosed with a salivary gland tumor, but we're thrilled to report now that he is on his way to making a full recovery!!

And the band is ready to get working again on their new album, Hot Sauce Committee, Part 1, which was postponed indefinitely after Yauch's diagnosis!!

He says:

“I feel better. It was touch and go there for a while, but I am finally getting my energy back. It was really disappointing to have to hold the record and postpone the tour, but doctor’s orders. We may or may not [release the album] depending on how my health is come September. We want to but we have to play it by ear. I was just talking to Adam [Horovitz] and Mike [D] today on the phone and we were talking about working on it a bit. We finished the record over a year ago, so we want to take a look at it and re-evaluate and make sure it is what we want to put out there and that we are still happy with it. I don’t think we will change it up too much.”

We're relieved you're feeling better, bb, and anxiously awaiting your new album!!

Stay healthy!!

    Thank you Lord. They definitely need to come back strong with this album. The last two albums, "The Mix Up" and "To the 5 Boroughs" were a little disappointing compared to all of their previous albums.

    Their song with Nas on their upcoming album is a little disappointing too. It has a lot of potential, but needs to be remixed or something. The rhymes aren't that great mixed in with the beats.

    I know every album they come out with is different from the other. Which is great, but come on lets make the Hot Sauce Committee Part I album the best ever. Please.

    I am a loyal grand royal member and I have been waiting for a sick Beastie Boys album to drop in September.

    "Shit, if this is gonna be that kind of party, I'm gonna stick my dick in the mashed potatoes."

    GReeeeeeeeeeeeeeAT news!!!!!! Love to hear when CANCER is beaten to a pulp!! :)

    Perez - please don't say he "beat" cancer - nobody really "beats" cancer - in this case, the cancer responded to treatment and is in remission. There is no permanent cure for this or any kind of cancer. That being said, however, I am so glad that Mr. Beastie Boy is better and doing well. Every day is a blessing and may he enjoy a long, happy life making music!

    Re: mack33 – "B-Boys Making with the Freak Freak" is one of my favs, I'm glad that you made that reference.

    Here's to you MCA, everyone's favorite Beastie Boy. Or is it Mike D? Or Adrock?



  14. 14

    Way to fight it, MCA!!! SO glad you're doing better!!!

    what the fcuk planet are you people on?hasn't your local radio station been playing these 3 old jews with extremely annoying voices 24/7 for the last 20 yrs? come on…? take the propaganda goggles and earmuffs off, they sound like nails on a chalk board but worse,they sound like 12 yr old boys taking turns screaming at their sister.



  16. 16

    Get better soon MCA

    If anyone wants to know where their salivary gland is, look in a mirror under the tip of your tongue. Right behind your two lower front teeth, those two bumps are your salivary glands. What they usually do when you have cancer there is remove them and for the rest of your life you have to drink artificial saliva from a bottle. O kid you not, Look it up on google, type in artificial saliva

    Glad he's better, but hated their stuff!



  19. 19

    Don't worry Adam.. the cancer WILL be coming back and this time.. it's going right for your lungs!



  20. 20

    I'm sure they're thrilled that you're relieved, dick-breath. Or they would be if they knew you were alive. Stop licking asses, you worthless twerp, and just report gossip.
