The end of May marks 3 years since the passing of Gil Scott-Heron, so we thought it was only right to give you the opportunity to hear Benji B tell Gil's story again.
Gone Too Soon: The Story Of Gil Scott-Heron was a documentary we produced for BBC Radio 1Xtra a year after Gil Scott-Heron passed away. In this documentary BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra’s Benji B celebrates the life of the musician, song-writer, poet, novelist and major influencer of what we now know as hip-hop.
Presenter/ Benji B, Producer/ A Folded Wing Production
