About Gil Scott-Heron

Gil Scott-Heron is by definition the most important progenitor of hip-hop music. His spoken word and poetic style was influential to every generation of the genre since its inception. His collaborative efforts with musician Brian Jackson were a mix of jazz, blues, and soul combined with the lyrical content of the political issues of the time. A self proclaimed “bluesologist,” his best know composition “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” still remains an influential anthem on today’s modern music.
