One of the most influential figures in hip-hop history despite being one of the genre’s mosty prominent critics, the late Gil-Scott Heron receives a fitting tribute on What They Say, the latest single and first Booth feature from Matt Reeves. Over the lightly jazzy boardwork of KJ. Glaze (sampled from Heron’s record of the same name), the Staten Island representer airs his grievances with the state of the game. For more, check out the artist’s 4 the Love of Hip Hop LP when it drops November 25 (aka Black Friday).
