Beastie Boys Slapped With Lawsuit Day Before Adam Yauch Death

It's come to light that the Beastie Boys were hit with a lawsuit over supposed undeclared samples the day before Adam "MCA" Yauch passed away.

The label Tuf America had submitted a lawsuit against the band which alleges they illegally sampled the 80's group Trouble Funk's "Say What" and "Drop The Bomb" on tracks from their debut album, "Licensed To Ill" and sophomore album, "Paul's Boutique".

The label's attorney Kelly Talcott released the following statement to E! News:

"I was very sorry to hear of Adam Yauch's untimely passing, and can assure you that the unfortunate timing of the filing of Tuf America's complaint had nothing to do with his health. On behalf of myself and Tuf America, I offer our condolences to Adam's family, friends and fans."

The band are still yet to comment on the lawsuit.
