MCA revealed that he had been fighting cancer since 2009, but it is not yet clear if his death was caused by the disease. His illness has caused the delay of the Beastie Boys's 2011 album, "Hot Sauce Committee, Part 2 ," and prevented Yauch from attending the group's induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Yauch was a practicing Buddhist, an activist for Tibetan freedom, and a film buff. He leaves behind wife Dechen Wangdu and their daughter, Tenzin Losel Yauch. Yauch and Wangdu married in May of 1998.
