RIP Gill Scott-Heron

Gil Scott-Heron passed away yesterday. If you only know him from his recent remix album with Jamie XX, you're missing out. Go back a few years for Small Talk at 125th and Lenox (1970), where he coined the phrase, "The revolution will not be televised," and Pieces of a Man (1971).

Here's his cover of Smog's "I'm New Here" from his incredible 2010 comeback album of the same name.



Gil died before accomplishing his life's goal of re-popularizing the fisherman's bucket hat. Let's make that happen, people!
