Music Nerdery.

I listen to a lot of Music.

Gil Scott Heron released a Hell of an album called "I'm New Here." You obviously need this in your life right now.

Rest Peacefully.

This man is one of the main reasons why Hip Hop exists in the form that it does. Spoken Word poetry is the basis for all Hip Hop, and men like him and The Last Poets are the reasons why you even know what rap music is.

Along with a powerful appearance on Kanye’s “Who Will Survive in America,” he had a wonderful album I picked up last year called “I’m New Here” (click here for more) as if to remind us that he hadn’t left… as if he was never going to leave us… despite his health. After releasing “We’re New Here” with Jamie XX(click here for more), he hopped on that Kanye track, then fell back.

I will miss you. And I’m glad your free from all of this.
