RIP Gil-Scott Heron

I bought Gil-Scott Heron’s first album in sixteen years featuring Jamie XX “We’re New Here”  as soon as it dropped a few months back and have been spinning it non stop ever since (hear it: http://www.spin.com/articles/hear-it-gil-scott-heron-and-jamie-xxs-remix-album). Ever since I first heard The Revolution will not be Televised back in sixth grade I’ve been intrigued by one of the greatest spoken word performers in American history. His body of work single handily influenced modern hip-hop as we know it.

Listen to the tribute episode by East Village Radio’s Chances with Wolves at Episode 154.
