  • Gil Scott-Heron

    Gil Scott-Heron was an influential poet, spoken word artist, and musician who is often credited as one of the most important progenitors of hip-hop. He is best known for his 1971 piece "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised," which sets socio-political commentary to heavy beats. Scott-Heron is also well known for his jazz-influenced soul, blues, and funk collaborations with musician Brian Jackson throughout the '70s. Earning the title "The Godfather of Rap" but preferring the moniker "bluesologist," Scott-Heron remained active until his death in 2011. Listening to his hard-hitting words on vinyl is incredible.
