Scot-Heron, who’s early ’70s recordings raised
a few eyebrows, was busted last weekend in a crack house
on 144th street by the NYPD. Gil Scot, whose song "The
Revolution Will Not Be Televised," has been adapted
by countless Hip-Hop acts, is considered by some to be the
Godfather Hip-Hop music.
A warrant for
his arrest was executed due to the fact that he had skipped
a previous court date for another drug related arrest. Scott-Heron’s
former girlfriend, Monique Delatour, said he had been living
in the crack house for about a year. "If he doesn’t
stop doing crack, he’s going to die," she said. Last
year, the Scot-Heron was was arrested after assaulting Delatour.
