Beasties Boys' Adam Yauch says reports of him being cancer-free are "exaggerated"

In sadder news than we’re used to on Monday mornings, it appears as if the happy news we received on Friday about Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch being cancer free was a little premature. The MC had this to say through press-release: “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.”

The Beastie Boys’ previously announced new album, Hot Sauce Committee Part 2, is still scheduled for a spring release.
