Gil Scott-Heron Is Back!

Nov 19, 2009 | Posted by: TheNewsMan | Full story: www.eurthisnthat.com

Itís a bird! Itís a plane! Nooooo itís the Heron! Gil Scott-Heron that is!

The man that had been long thought dead has arisen and is back with a new album that has only been whispered about as legend in smoky after hour joints for years.

Heís come out of the shadows to grace the stage and preach once again.

Gil Scott-Heron, in case youíre not familiar as you should be, set the stage for hip-hop. The poetry and verse that heís given us, like ďThe Revolution Wonít Be TelevizedĒ, gave Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five their Message.

Heron was one of the first to lay the truth on track and pave the way for the beginning of the rap game.

'Your Daddy Loves You' & 'I Think I'll Call It Morning' are two of my most favorites by him. I like 'The Bottle' too. Many of his songs are very creative and consciousness.

WRONG.....Heron patterned his style after the LAST POETS, who were the first to use the phrase the 'Revolution Won't Be Televised'....

'With their politically charged raps, taut rhythms, and dedication to raising African-American consciousness, the Last Poets almost single-handedly laid the groundwork for the emergence of hip-hop.'

Go head Girl, PREACH! I have been trying for years to find the Last Poets Album and also an album Nikki Giovanni did with James Cleveland.

They we're bad! Real intelligence. Thought provoking poetry, not this rap trash we hear today.

well, whoever started rap crap or hippity-hop "music" should be burned alive lol--you blacks need to stick to R & B--that's where your real talent lies--The mid-90's was one of the greatest times ever for top ten music, and it was all soul and R & B, especially the black women singers--SWV,Adina Howard, TLC,Kut Klose,Desiree,En Vogue, etc.

Some of us have been around long enough to remember the struggles that inspired the Last Poets and similar groups. The 60's (particularly the year '68) were full of the struggles that paved the way for the things a lot of mainstream America takes for granted now.....Just sayin'.....
