R.i.p. Gil Scott-Heron

"The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" still gives me chills anytime I hear it, though his newer stuff like "New York Is Killing Me" was equally awesome.

So sad to see him go so soon.


It is sad to see anyone go, especially anyone that may not be filled with sanctifying grace. Eternity is a long time.

Was he a man filled with the Holy Spirit?

Considering how he turned his life around, releasing his first album in so many years just last year and had a remix album earlier this year, I’d say yes, he was - clearly a textbook example of redemption.
