Recently, Mike D of the Beastie Boys, rang Zane Lowe’s show to say that fellow bandmate Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch is clear of cancer.

Sadly, the announcement that real hip-hop fans around the world have been waiting for may have come too soon, according to news sources on Gigwise.  Yauch released a statement saying that the news was ‘exaggerated’ and he is still receiving treatment.

It’s a shame when news like this plays out back and forth in big media, but in any case, we still pray for a speedy recovery.
