WEFUNK - Show 649: Tribute to Gil Scott-Heron

WEFUNK - Show 649 - June 03, 2011

I've been a fan of WEFUNK Radio for years. The guys out of Montreal know how to string together some good music and then next thing you know you've lost two hours of your life - AND it's all good.

From the title of the show, you know that you're going to get a dose of funk, but they weave in lots of hip hop, rare grooves and (excuse me for the cliche) the dopest lyricists ever! The show is consistently solid and always introducing me to someone new.

Today's newness comes from d.i.t.c. (about 1 hour and 27 seconds into the show) Whoa!! Where have I been? Or where have they been? Loved hearing "Day One" from 2000. The hard and crafty rhymes just keep flowin. Love that.

But really the focus on Gil Scott-Heron on this show is killer. You have to hear it for yourself. Oh, and the Rakim interview clips about James Brown are so enlightening and very cool.

So hip hoppers, set aside two hours to get nothing done, but you'll be dancing your ass off and nodding your head. For real. kfox.

This is really interesting! Gil Scott Heron was the founding father of rap much as George Washington was the founder of the nation. Every rapper owes something to this great man! Wow!! Talk about social commentary and political prowess. Too bad he had to go!

I am a huge hip hop fan and I was searching through youtube recently for some new rap to listen to, and I came across this artist, dennrock, who is pretty damn good! Check him out,
