The Beastie Boys and friends celebrated the life and legacy of Adam "MCA" Yauch at MCA Day in Brooklyn this past May on the 1-year anniversary of his death. The video recap of the event arrives today, just in time for MCA's birthday. The spring celebration was full of fans and friends professing their love for the Brooklyn MC who lived a life of creativity and compassion. The crowning event of the day was the renaming of Brooklyn's Palmetto Playground to honor the fallen Beastie Boy. The New York State Senate drafted and presented a resolution just days later to honor the memory of Yauch, who was not just an ill MC but an agent of change. Still deeply impacted by the sudden loss, fans reconvened to take a group stroll through New York City yesterday to celebrate Adam Yauch's birthday; the walking tour stopped at landmarks specific to the Beastie Boys and allowed fans to continue to bond over their love for the fallen MC. Take a look back at the awesome legacy left by Adam "MCA" Yauch in the MCA Day recap below. Take a few moments out of your day to blast The Beastie Boys and celebrate's Yauch's life properly with ?uestlove's Beastie Boys Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Demo Mix. Happy Birthday, MCA!
