At a recent gig at the Sound Academy in Toronto, perennial PopMatters fave Talib Kweli debuted a new song in tribute to the Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch, who recently passed away. Word is, his sixth album Prisoner of Conscious will be on the way this year, but no release date has been announced yet. We are eagerly awaiting it.
