THE GODFATHER OF RAP HAS LEFT THE BUILDING.
Gil Scott Heron,
May your poems, songs and words live forever.
May we hold them dear to our ear and spread the echoes of their lived truth to one another, sister and brother, and youngsters alike.
May this generation of rappers and rhymers analyze your words of truth and revolution and add to
their own ciphers with positivity and respect.
Your body may have ascended.
However your poems and songs will have you livin’ 4ever.
CNN and other networks may be reporting your death.
BUT WE THE PEOPLE ARE CELEBRATIN’ YOUR LIFE!
RIP GIL SCOTT HERON
