Talk about your ill communication.
In a video posted on their official Website, Beastie Boys members Adam Yauch and Adam Horovitz, otherwise known as MCA and Ad Rock, delivered some bad news to fans—the Beasties will have to cancel their upcoming summer tour and postpone the launch date for their new album after Yauch was diagnosed with cancer.
"About two months ago, I started feeling this little lump in my throat that you would feel if you had like swollen glands or something like that or you'd feel if you had a cold, so I really didn't think it was anything," said the rapper, seated in a recording studio. "But then just recently when we were over in Europe doing promotion...I called my doctor and saw him when I got back, and this was about two weeks ago, and he sent me to a specialist, and they did tests, and I actually have a form of cancer in the gland."
Good thing he checked his head.
