RIP Gil Scott-Heron

Legend.

"If you practice for ten years, you may begin to please yourself, after 20 years you may become a performer and please the audience, after 30 years you may please even your guru, but you must practice for many more years before you finally become a true artist—then you may please even God." --Ali Akbar Khan, 1922-2009

RIP to an incredible poet and musician. He influenced so many Hip Hop artists and his words will live on forever. The revolution will not be televised.

Re: RIP Gil Scott-Heron

I only recently discovered him last year when Kanye sampled a work of his on the last song of his album. The bit Kanye sampled was incredible. It was deep! I don't know if this is the full piece but here is the song.

RIP Gil. And while your name wasn't widely famous, the phrase: "The revolution will not be televised" certainly was.
