Gil Scott Heron: Blackademics February Interview!!!

Every February I try my best to line up a dope Blackademics interview to commemorate Black History Month. Back in 2007 we heard from the Reverend Jesse Jackson. I got to chop it up with 12-time Grammy winner Herbie Hancock in 2008. This year I think I’ve outdone myself. Our 2010 Blackademics interviewee is musician, poet and griot Gil Scott Heron. We discuss his music, his inspirations, and his Godson: Hip-Hop. And though the Revolution is not being televised, it is being broadcast via youtube and facebook for your enlightenment. Enjoy! [Also, don’t forget to cop his new album, I’m New Here out on XL Recordings.]
