Some call Gil Scott-Heron the godfather of hip hop, but no one will dispute the man is a legend of spoken word and a key figure in hip hop’s development. Sixteen years have passed since his last album. The wait is over. The album, cleverly entitled, I’m New Here (because this man shouldn’t be new to anyone, and if he is–well shame on you) is available for streaming at our buddy Nialler 9, which you can find here.
