Throwback Jamz: Gil Scott Heron "Winter In America"

 Soo can we please take a moment to pay homage to a legendary musician who has influenced the art of rhythm and blues.  A profound poet who has embraced the culture of jazz music Gil Scott Heron helped pave the way for Hip-Hop and Neo Soul.

Released in 1974 Winter In America expressed Gil Scott's passion for spiritual change in America. He travels below the surface surface in his message, speaking on the pain of the average citizen who has frozen dreams and aspirations.  Yes, he dares to challenge the direction of politics as he very much conscious.  Still till this day we as a nation struggle with the same controversial issues he spoke on then.

Check out the video below..And just listen
