Freddie Gibbs has shared his take on Gil Scott-Heron's 'Winter In America'.

Freddie Gibbs appears on new EP called 'Black History Always – Music For The Movement Vol. 2', a potent selection of socially conscious pieces.

The EP was constructed by ESPN’s The Undefeated and Hollywood Records, and also features Chaka Khan and Brent Faiyaz.

Following on from his ScHoolboy Q team up on 'Gang Signs', Freddie Gibbs now turns his attention to a supremely important African-American writer.

Gil Scott-Heron's work only seems to gain in importance – check out Makaya McCraven's 2020 work 'We're New Again' for more inspiration – depicting the fault-lines of North American life.

A smooth but affecting take on the original, Freddie Gibbs seems to illuminate the continued importance of Gil's lyricism.
