RIP GIL SCOTT HERON


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!

SINCERELY,

ARTIKLEBLAK

RIP GIL SCOTT HERON

About artikleblak

Artikleblak is a panoramic color-consciousness of digital media connecting the African Diaspora throughout the world. This world is a massive environment and our images and stories and concerns are spread to sparingly throughout the planet and digital terra. People of color comprise 4/5th of the world's population. Yet we have to Google search and channel surf and scour the event calendars to find ourselves, whether it be a person, place or thing. We should nevermore let oceans, languages, religions, cultures or man-made boundaries partition us. Our humanity is to powerful to remain fragmented, lets make it ONE again. Sincere thanks, Artikleblak
