RIP Gil Scott-Heron

I got a tweet he’d died and checked Wikipedia. It said he was still alive. One minute later it changed to reflect his death. A minute later Wikipedia resurrected him, and just afterwards he slipped away again.

Anyway Pitchfork is now taking the news so I guess that’s now official.

I can’t say I’ve pulled out the album I own for a long time but respect his influence on hip-hop.
