Gil Scott-Heron Passed Away


This legend has passed on. Gil was one of the voices during the Black movement of the 70s, giving us classics like "Pieces Of A Man" and "Winter In America". Who could forget the poem and song “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”. It is still used and spoken in lounges, classrooms and poetry slams to this day.

Gil has left us with so much. He will be missed.
