Pioneer of intelligent rap, acid jazz-meister, poet, satirist, soul man . . . Gil Scott-Heron remains a heavyweight presence in pop culture, despite the fact that he has delivered only two studio albums over the last quarter century. Back on the map with 2010's [i]I'm New Here[/i], featuring single "Me and the Devil", Scott-Heron has sparked renewed enthusiasm for his back catalogue, from the still-gripping 1971 proto-hip-hop audio molotov, "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", to "The Bottle", with its exotic bass-line, soaring flute (provided by lynchpin collaborator Brian Jackson) and deft lyrical flow: a classic example of Scott-Heron's piercing, far-sighted poetic vision. In Next Steps, Scott-Heron offers an early condemnation of apartheid.
