Gil Scott-Heron

This is some very interesting stuff right here. If you were to take 3 cups of Tom Waits, 1 cup of Ray Charles, and dashes of both Johnny Cash and Hip-Hop you will get Gil Scott-Heron. This is something that wouldn't normally be found on my iPod but it is pretty interesting, thought that everyone needs to be open to all types of music and this is nothing that will be a quick like after two songs. The "On Coming From a Broken Home" two part song tells a great story. He could make a great motivational speaker despite the deepness of his voice clearly from smoking. The album, I'm New Here, is coming out on Feb. 9th. Found this on Pitchfork.
