Random Jukebox: Gil Scott-Heron’s Home Is Where The Hatred Is

Sometimes you just have to roll with the selections of the random jukebox, and today it zipped back to 1971 and Home Is Where The Hatred Is by the no-nonsense bluesologist Gil Scott-Heron, who died nine years ago today.

Anyone with a keen sense of musical history will tell you Heron’s gritty fusion of R&B, soul, jazz-funk, and proto-rap was an eminently important progenitor of hip hop and electronic dance music. They wouldn’t be wrong.
