We’re posting this blog with sad hearts as an ongoing Beastie Boys tribute plays throughout our office. Legendary rapper Adam Yauch, better known as MCA, has died at the age of 47 after a tough battle with cancer.
Not only did MCA co-found the Beastie Boys and make some of the most iconic music hip-hop has ever known, he’s helped to inspire countless musicians and fans. We’d like to extend our deepest sympathies to his wife, daughter, family, friends, and admirers. It only seems right that we mix up some Brass Monkeys this weekend to honor a life lost far too soon.
A Brass Monkey is best known as a cocktail consisting of equal parts beer or malt liquor (usually Olde English 800) and orange juice. Some prefer to forgo the glass, drink a 40 oz bottle of malt liquor down to the label and then fill the rest with OJ.
We like to think Adam would approve. RIP MCA.
