Lawsuits are something that the entertainment world is no stranger to and now The Beastie Boys are in the midst of a legal battle at most untimely moment.
The day before the death of band member, Adam 'MCA' Yauch, TufAmerica filed a lawsuit against the legendary band in New York's federal court claiming that The Beastie Boys allegedly stole music from the '80s band Trouble Funk for two of their biggest albums.
The music industry lost one of its most influential members on Friday (May 4). Adam Yauch of The Beastie Boys was a contributing factor to a revolution in rap music and he will be greatly missed.
The 47-year-old rapper, a.k.a. MCA, may have lost his three year battle with cancer, but he left his mark on the world as he transformed out of his notorious party animal reputation into an independent film creator and philanthropist.
