RIP Gil Scott-Heron

While an official cause of death hasn't been reported, word on the tweets/Internets is that Gil Scott-Heron, one of the icons and fathers of the word, has passed away at the age of 62. I'm not the biggest student of his catalog, but tracks like "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" and "Angel Dust" are shits that have shaped what the fuck I do in life. You can have your Hovs and your Lil' Waynes, Gil was the truth. Is the truth. Damn.
