NEW YORK (AP) — The Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch rapped that he wouldn’t “sell my songs for no TV ad”. His will shows he wanted to make sure that held true after his death, too.
“In no event may my image or name or any music or any artistic property created by me be used for advertising purposes,” says the will, filed this week in a Manhattan court. Yauch, known for his good nature as well as his raspy voice in one of hip-hop’s groundbreaking acts, died of cancer in May. He was 47.
