Despite reports to the contrary, legendary Beastie Boys rapper Adam "MCA" Yauch says that he is still battling cancer.

Earlier this week, several media outlets reported that Yauch had been cleared of periaortic gland and lymph node cancer, after fellow Beastie Boy Mike D. told BBC's Radio One, "we're really happy" about Yauch's all-clear status.

Yauch released a statement on the Beastie Boys' website Friday night to thank his fans for their support, and correct Mike D.'s comments, saying, "While I'm grateful for all the positive energy people are sending my way, reports of my being totally cancer-free are exaggerated. I'm continuing treatment, staying optimistic and hoping to be cancer-free in the near future."

In August of 2009, Yauch announced that he had been diagnosed with a "very treatable" tumor in his salivary gland, causing the Beastie Boys to cancel their upcoming tour and postpone the release date of their forthcoming LP, 'Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 1,'
which has since been shelved, and will be released after the album's follow-up, 'Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2,' due later this year.

Would this keep him from doing a 1-off 2hr show?

Either way, I hope he gets better.

Kinda sad that he looks this old now

This doesnt totally rule them out...he recently directed their new music video/short film Fight For Your Right Revisited/Make Some Noise...he is still doing the film premieres, and Sundance+Q&A...so, I dont think a 1-1.5h set is out of question...but Beasties will be touring in 2011...its just a question of Coachella or not...

Dude, what is wrong with you? I'm not saying they'll be there this year, but how does this rule them out officially?

I wish the best for MCA. With that being said, the Beastie Boys not being at Coachella would be a great thing.

rasooli IS smarter and more educated than 95% of us, so clearly he can infer some meaning from this the rest of us can't grasp.
