Gil Scott-Heron (born April 1, 1949) is an American poet, musician, and author known primarily for his late 1970s and early 1980s work as a spoken word performer and his collaborative soul works with musician Brian Jackson. His collaborative efforts with Jackson featured a musical fusion of jazz, blues and soul music, as well as lyrical content concerning social and political issues of the time, delivered in both rapping and melismatic vocal styles by Scott-Heron. The music of these albums, most notably Pieces of a Man and Winter in America in the early 1970s, influenced and helped engender later African-American music genres such as hip hop and neo soul. Scott-Heron’s recording work is often associated with black militant activism and has received much critical acclaim for one of his most well-known compositions “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”. His poetic style has been influential upon every generation of hip hop since his popularity began.[1] Although he is widely considered a influence in today’s music he is still active with an album that came out in 2010 entitled I’m New Here as well as playing a large role in the 2010 Kanye West Platinum album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. In track 13, the final song of the album,”Comment #1″ track number 4 from side 1 of his 1969 album Small Talk at 125th and Lenox is played over a different beat and renamed as “Who Will Survive in America” which is a point stressed by Gil in his original poem.
