Jam-Master Jay and Adam "MCA" Yauch To Be Honored In Brooklyn

Jam-Master Jay and Adam "MCA" Yauch of the Beastie Boys are going to be celebrated in New York City this August. "Together Forever: Jam Master Jay + MCA” has been announced; an event celebrating the lives and legacies of two of Hip-Hop's fallen stars. DJ Hurricane and Danny Boy of House Of Pain are expecting to attend, as well as "special guests."

The event is hosted by the Beastie Boys Collection, and takes place on August 7 at Adam Yauch Park in Brooklyn. The day will also honor photographer Ricky Powell, who traveled with Beastie Boys throughout their career and became a famous part of their inner circle.
