Cure live rock or no?

I just picked up 50 lbs of LR. My tank has been cycling for 2-3 days now. Should I just put the rock in, or should I brush/scrape any die-off. I know I should get the rock in a.s.a.p. What to do? Thanks

as long as you dont have any fish in the tank - I would get the LR in asap to begin the curing process....
