    You may not need the history lesson, but I sure did. Gil Scott Heron's video for "Me and the Devil" marks a comeback. From what? I wasn't initially sure. I had not heard of the man, his poetry, his music, or the various pieces of literature that propelled him to fame in the late 60's and early 70's. Word is Heron help provide some seriously sturdy roots from which American Hip Hop would one day bloom. Shame on me man...shame on me.

    Thing is, I'm guessing I'm not the only one. Why else would he blaze the title I'm New Here across the cover of his first album in 15 years? The album hits stores via XL Recordings on February 9th. Ahead of it's release, Heron's has a trippy new video for "Me and the Devil" to show you. It's got a black and white, New York sort of look, but this ain't Woody Allen's Manhattan. Instead, directors Coodie & Chike and Michael Sterling Eaton suggest the devil walks amongst us, employing a ghoulish cast of characters to take over the city's streets and parks. It's actually pretty creepy...for the first three-and-a-half minutes. When Gil hops on the mic to cutaways of a staggering zombie (?), it's downright sinister. - David Pitz
