This still kills me. I always had faith that he'd beat his cancer but that's how it goes, I guess. It's hard for me to pick a favorite Beastie since they all pulled equal weight and each had their own unique styles but MCA is definitely an inspiration to me.
I admittedly didn't fully appreciate Beastie Boys music beyond their hits until a couple years ago when I got into their whole discography. Didn't take long though for them to become an absolute favorite of mine. Their music really helped me through a shitty time and helped me maintain a confident, positive outlook that I was sorely lacking at the time.
RIP Adam Yauch. Thanks for all you've done.
If others disrespect me or give me flack
I'll stop and think before I react
Knowing that they're going through insecure stages
I'll take the opportunity to exercise patience
I'll see it as a chance to help the other person
Nip it in the bud before it can worsen
