Snapshot:
Regarded as the godfather of rap, Gil Scott-Heron's vocal style is closer to talking than traditional singing, and in his talks, he speaks of political and social issues, angling for change. The Revolution Will Not Be Televised is perhaps his most famous song, appearing on his debut album, Small Talk at 125th and Lenox. Though he has spent the majority of this century in and out of prison, he continues to tour and produce new music when he can, adding to his catalogue of two dozen albums.
