Updated on July 14, 2015

Gil Scott-Heron - American Poet (April 1, 1949 – May 27, 2011)

In the interest of knowledge and support I have added links the most of the artists own personal websites or cool articles about them. There are so many more samples coming your way this summer so make sure you check back every week.

Meanwhile I am expanding in almost every way so if you are interested in working with me in the future please let me know.

      Yo funk, love your stuff. I would love to meet you and listen to music all day. You have the same love for music as me, always listening to the old school cause that's where the samples came from. Just a note, give some love to Roger (Troutman)and Zapp for the California Love sample in Cali’s All That - Def Jef ft. Tone Loc!! Peace man, keep your videos coming, love the education
