- Groundbreaking poet and political activist Gil Scott-Heron, who helped lay the groundword for rap and is best known for the song “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” died on Friday night at the age of 62. Read rememberances by the Post; New York Times; and the BBC. The cause of death is unknown. Scott-Heron stayed active late into his career, releasing a new album, “I’m New Here” in 2010 and “We’re New Here,” a collaborative remix album with Jamie XX earlier this year. Later today on Click Track we will have a recap of a memorial concert held Monday night at Bohemian Caverns in tribute to Scott-Heron.

- “Beautiful Girls” singer Sean Kingston is in critical but stable condition at a Miami hospital following a weekend jet ski accident.
