"I'm glad to know all the love he put out into the world is coming right back at him," writes Yauch's bandmate and lifelong friend on the group's blog.
While the music world still mourns the loss of Adam Yauch, aka Beastie Boys' MCA, his bandmate of more than three decades and lifelong friend Adam 'Ad-Rock' Horovitz took to the group's Tumblr on Sunday to address their fans.
Writes Horovitz: "as you can imagine, shit is just fkd up right now. but i wanna say thank you to all our friends and family (which are kinda one in the same) for all the love and support. i’m glad to know that all the love that Yauch has put out into the world is coming right back at him. thank you." The post was accompanied by a photo of a hand with "PWR2MCA" written in marker along with "I love you."
Countless contemporaries and admirers of the rapper and activist have expressed their appreciation for Yauch's life's work in recent days. Bands such as Coldplay and Red Hot Chili Peppers covered Beastie Boys classics at their concerts over the weekend, while Yauch's image was projected in memoriam at Madison Square Garden on the jumbo-tron on May 6 during the Knicks-Miami Heat game (Yauch was a passionate basketball fan who had directed 2008's acclaimed documentary Gunnin' for That No. 1 Spot, which followed eight of the top high school basketball players in the U.S.)
Yauch died on Friday, May 4 after a years-long battle with cancer. He was 47.
