{Gil Scott-Heron}

Street poet/singer Gil Scott-Heron’s new album, his first in over a decade and a half, titled I'm New Here is a mix of spoken word with bluesy, jazzy trip-hop tinged rhythms.

The song, which is also the album’s title, I’m New Here, is from Smog’s outstanding A River Ain’t Too Much To Love, where Smog aka Bill Callahan is told by a woman at a bar that he has “an ego the size of Texas.” And he asks her, "I’m new here, and I forget, does that mean big or small?"

The musical pioneer behind The Revolution Will Not Be Televised even has a little Kanye in the backround of his story of his struggles growing up "On Coming From A Broken Home".
