Breakdancing Buddhist Monks Pay Tribute to Late Beastie Boy Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch

MCA Day

A year after his death from cancer, a quartet of robed Buddhist monks hit Union Square in New York City for a breakdancing tribute to Beastie Boy Adam “MCA” Yauch. The spectacle was part of the city’s new annual MCA-Day on May 3rd, honoring the life of the rapper/activist who spent much of his life voicing support for Tibetan independence, including the launch of the Tibetan Freedom Concert in 1996.
