    Love & Respect to the End: Santigold, Danny Brown, and More Remember MCA

    In mid-April 2012, the Beastie Boys announced one-third of the group — gravel-voiced Adam "MCA" Yauch — would be unable to join them at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, where they were being honored for their 26-year recording career. On May 4, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz and Michael "Mike D" Diamond confirmed fans' worst fears: Yauch, 47, had succumbed to the salivary gland cancer he'd been battling since 2009.In the year since Yauch's death, his impact on the worlds of hip-hop, punk, art, film, and humanitarianism haven't faded — they've come into clearer focus.

    45 Hay-Ya! Moments in Rap and Country's Uncomfortable History

    The shotgun marriage between rap and country didn't start with "Accidental Racist." In fact, the two genres have been doing an awkward square dance almost as long as they've been around. Take a look back at these 45 moments that range from "Yee-haw!" to "Yeesh!" It's bigger than hick-hop.
