A unique artist is gone.

A pioneer of rap, godfather to Public Enemy and countless others. Gil Scott-Heron combined articulate, witty, angry political commentary with unrelenting sweet soufulness and awesome musicianship. Check out Johanessburg (recorded 2 years before the Soweto riots) and B Movie for a taste of a voice that will be sorely missed.
