The album is a great example of his lyrical prowess

The militant godfather of spoken word, Gill Scott-Heron was a poet, musician and author.
He grew up in Chicago but soon moved to New York. Following the publication of his first book The Vulture in 1970 he embarked on what would be a prolific recording career. His second album Pieces of a Man from 1971 featured some of his most recognisable works in The Revolution Will Not Be Televised and Home Is Where The Hatred Is. The album is a great example of his lyrical prowess and perfectly showcases the depths of his vocal talent.
