Gil Scott-Heron. Gone.

Gil Scott-Heron, renowned poet and author has passed away at age 62. Wow. For those of you who may not be as familiar with him just know that he authored "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised". EVERYBODY has to have at least come in contact with that piece. If not in it's entirety at least in its title as present in a good amount of modern day thought! So today, we honor a man of immense creativity and the energy and selflessness to share it.

Go listen to Kanye's "Lost In The World" if you're still slightly confused.

Rest In Peace, Mr. Gil Scott-Heron.
