-Because most of the Gil Scott-Heron tributes didn’t go much further than playing “The Bottle”, “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” or that Jamie XX remix accompanied with the same lame nonsense about him being the godfather of Hip Hop we thought it was needed to set some things straight. By playing lesser known gems and trying to explain why we love the man’s music. After that we kept on going on the same vibe.
