line up break down (Gil Scott-Heron)
This man is a LEGEND. Some people call him one of the precursors to the rap genre with his poetic lyrical style. His insightfulness on current events created a unique type of music with political undertones. some topics he has covered in song contain themes such as: nixon and his watergate scandal, nuclear power-plants, apartheid, Regan, as well as a classic hit "whitey's on the moon".
The Artist has defiantly had a few bumps in the road, having been in and out of jail and rehab, he still persists in his musical quest. Gils new cd "I'm new here" has a few songs that i instantly liked when i first herd them. a couple songs he is casually half singing, half talking on like he is reading poetry. "I'm new Here" does a good job at touching on many genres, from hip-hop and gospel to dubstep and blues. Rolling Stone Magazine says he has "the sound of a damaged man staring in the mirror without self pity but not with out hope"
