Listen To The Story Of Gil Scott-Heron

Last night BBC 1Xtra paid tribute to the life and work of Gil Scott-Heron as part of the Gone Too Soon series with Benji B.

The show features interviews with long time collaborator Brian Jackson, as well as producer Richard Russell and artists Jamie xx, Mos Def and Shabazz Palaces amongst others.

Looking at Gil's legacy - both musically, poetically and socially - the hour-long special is available to listen to on the 1Xtra website for the next 7 days.
