On May 4th, 2012, Beastie Boy Adam Yauch passed away at the age of 47, following his three-year battle with cancer.
The singer was probably the most powerful celebrity to make the younger generation aware of the liberation struggle in Tibet. This week, a group of Tibetan monks gave back.
The four monks decided to honor Yauch’s memory by breakdancing in Manhattan’s Union Square to the tune of “Ch-Check It Out” off The Beastie Boys’ 2004 album “To the 5 Boroughs.”
Unfortunately it’s casual-spectator quality, but it’s still worth Checking Out (sorry).
