What’s a dope way to pay homage to the decorated Beastie Boy member, Adam Yauch? How about by having a group of monks breakdancing in his remembrance in the middle of Union Square?

This past Saturday served as the third annual "MCA Day "in New York City. In honor of Yauch, a group of Tibetan monks decided to show love to the former rap star by dishing out some of their favorite dance moves to The Beastie Boys’ 2004 track “Ch-Check It Out” off of their album To The 5 Boroughs. Yauch, who died of cancer two years ago at age 47, was a strong advocate in raising awareness to the Tibet’s liberation struggle.

Check out the video in honor of the pioneer.
