I’m New Here


Yesterday, Gil Scott Heron passed away at 62 due to an infection. His music was influential to many artists. I loved him in the 70’s, but when I’m New Here came out in 2010, it spoke to my soul. I had to get it right away. Beautiful.

In this 2010 article by the Guardian, he tells of his life and his struggle with addiction.

RIP Godfather
