Gil Scott-Heron

The poet/musician whose work became the soundtrack for a movement passed away in May at age 62. A progenitor of hip hop, Scott-Heron continued to captivate the hearts and minds of multiple generations throughout his life. He released his last album in 2010 and was featured on Kanye West's latest album.
