R.I.P The Revolution
Gil Scott Heron 1949-2011. R.I.P. my uncle in the fight for equality. What can I say about this very important brother that hasn’t been said-nothing. His work speaks for it’s self.
“Home is where the hatred is…It might not be such a bad idea if I never, never went home again…*”
“The revolution will not be televised.” If he came out with an album today, he might say…The Revolution will not be tweeted. I can’t say how important he is to me musically, as a minority and as a human. R.I.P Gil.
“The revolution will be live.”
* I feel that way right now.
