RIP Gil Scott-Heron

The Chicago born author, singer, poet and activist passed away on Friday at the age of 62. Heron had a huge impact on hip-hop, from the militant activism in his lyrics to the numerous songs from his catalog that provided the backbone for a ton of songs over the years. He may be gone, but his work lives on, and so will the revolution.
