Today it is six months since Gil passed away. Here is a newly edited video for I’ll Take Care Of You from his last studio album, I’m New Here.
Rest in peace.
From The Observer: “Jamie Byng, publisher of Canongate Books, was a friend of Gil Scott-Heron for more than 20 years. During 2010 they recorded this interview in London where the rapper-poet talked about his life and work, interspersed with intimate performances of his music. A fuller version of the film is to be released later in 2011.”
