Video: Gil Scott-Heron - RIP // + Twit One - A salute to Gil Scott-Heron

I´m glad Gil Scott-Heron called some attention on his last record and made once again clear what a gifted & powerful poet and musician he was. He showed a last time that he still got it - putting all the struggle with life and drug abuse in the rear. He died 3 days ago 62 years old in a new yorker hospital.

The first time I recognised him was actual on a sample..   So here is a kmd for you + a late performance (probably not one of his best, but it´s touching that he did such a performance on a small stage in the park..) of the man himself.
For all who are interested in his lifework I recomend the documentary: Gil Scott-Heron – The godfather of rap.
rest in peace.

Audio: Beatsofreen - 1965

Beatsofreen - 1965 by Beatsofreen

Beatsofreen:
The idea of this beat has been inspired by the dreadful military conflict in Vietnam, back in the 60's and 70's. The title '1965' refers to the year that president Johnson from the United States started 'Operation Rolling Thunder', a aerial bombardment campaign against Vietnam. 864.000 tons of American bombs had been dropped on North Vietnam during Rolling Thunder, 200.000 Vietnamese civilians were killed. The theme in this beat speaks for itself. History repeats in '1965' !
