A dope 14 minute tribute on Soundcloud by Italian beatmaker trio Bluesteady Triptik to the late Gil Scott Heron with some dedicated smooth as joints, produced the day after he died. The Bluesteady Triptik is made up of producers Irhu, GSQ and Bonbooze, who after 12 years with the Wild Soldierz crew got together as a three to work on beats together, and a few months back released their first beat tape (the download link is below). It goes without saying again, from all at Word Is Bond, rest in peace Gil Scott-Heron. He will be sorely missed.
A quick note to the UK users; Ray Charles did a great show on Gil Scott-Heron on 6Music yesterday which you can listen to via the iPlayer here.
