If you hadn't heard the news yet, MCA of Beastie Boys has a cancerous tumor on his left salivary gland. Luckily, it's localized and easily treatable. Due to this, the Beasties are canceling their summer performances and pushing the new album back while MCA has surgery and recovers. H & J would like to wish MCA a safe surgery and a speedy recovery because he's "cool as a cucumber in a bowl of hot sauce."
There's a video featuring MCA and Ad-Rock discussing this situation after the jump.
