Adam Yauch aka MCA and Oscilloscope: How the Beastie Boys rapper became an indie film mogul | Midnight Rambler |

Adam Yauch, who died today at 47, may have been best known as MCA from the Beastie Boys, but in recent years he became a crucial player in indie film. After rapping and rocking with the Beastie Boys, lending his voice to the cause of Tibetan independence, and throwing down tomahawk slams in NBA Jam, Yauch spent much of his last four years getting up every morning, heading into his office at Oscilloscope Laboratories, and putting out some of the best films of the year.
