It's been a week since the passing of legendary Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch, also known as "MCA". Artists from all genres of music have payed their respects to the fallen pioneer and now he's even received his own tribute mural in Brooklyn.
Designed and created by the "Entree Lifestyle", the piece bares the name of the group's track "Gratitude".
The Entree Lifestyle released a statement.
"May 7th 2012, the rain let up in Brooklyn for just enough time to let us pay homage to an inspirational artist and person from our hometown. MCA, who sadly passed away on May 4th, 2012, was a founding member of the prodigious Beastie Boys. On a personal note, the Beastie Boys were like older brothers to us. Inspiring us as rappers, stereo type crushers, instrumentalists, culture kings, videographers, editors, business men, show men and as exceptional and special human beings. Thank you for the inspiration, for this and many many more good reasons, in the heart of Midwood Brooklyn, where it all began, we payed tribute to the energy he gave us in the best way we knew how. Thank you for your contributions to music, art, and humanity. Shout outs to Mike-D, King Ad Rock, and all of the family and friends of Adam Yauch. Our condolences during these difficult times. MCA's essence lives on." -Team Entree
The mural sits in Midwood, Brooklyn.
