Revolutionary poet, author, musician, spoken word pioneer, activist, all around legend and amazing inspiration to me,  Gil Scott-Heron, best known for his 1970 work “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”, died May 27th at a New York City hospital at 62 years old.

Best known for…

Unfortunately also known for fighting his demons…

One of my faves, great song about a great city…

Another fave of mine…

If you rap and haven’t heard this, class has begun,  this is for y’all…

His last video…

If you don’t already have his albums, shame on you… so buy em, download em, steal em, whatever, just make sure you got em. All classics.

R.I.P. Gil Scott-Heron.

RIP gill scott heron! I didn’t know he was the one who originally said ‘the revolution will not be televised’. I thought it was the rapper Common.
