Gil Scott-Heron

Gil Scott-Heron passed away in NYC earlier today. The soulful spoken-word artist, best known for 1970′s “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” experienced a resurgence in popularity with last year’s I’m New Here, his first new album in 16 years. Jamie xx produced a remix of the album that was released earlier this year. Scott-Heron was 62.

  1. Rapture does exist, but God decided to only beam up Gill Scott-Heron and leave the rest on the ground!

  2. “And because your going to see me run soon,
    And because your going to know why I’m running then,
    You’ll know then, Because I’m not going to tell you now”
    I hope he found it….. RIP

  3. Gil’s last album is called I’m New Here, not I’m New Year.
