The Revolution Will Not Go Better With Coke

Spoken word artist/hip-hop pioneer Gil Scott-Heron died over he weekend at the age of 62. If you haven’t ever heard his famous song/poem “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” you should check it out here.

And here’s an interesting interview with him talking about that song/poem a number of years later and the way social/political change happens and blossoms.

“The first change that takes place is in your mind. You have to change your mind before you change the way you’re living.”

A good piece of advice!
