The Last Poets at Southbank Centre on Wednesday.
If Gil Scott-Heron is "The Godfather of rap" then meet the young fathers - The Last Poets. On Wednesday they perform at Southbank Centre. A few months ago we hung out in Harlem. A few years ago I presented a BBC radio documentary called The Last Poets. It includes interviews and archive of James Baldwin, JFK, Malcolm X, Gil Scott Heron...here it is. Press play.
