Haseeb Iqbal

This month, Haseeb celebrates the life of legendary poet, musician and activist Gil Scott-Heron, joined in the studio by his daughter, Ché Scott-Heron. One of the most important African American voices in history and the precursor to all rap and hip-hop, both Haseeb and Ché map the incredibly fascinating life of Mr Scott-Heron. Navigating the context of his hugely political voice, we hear personal anecdotes of what he was like as a father, how he and Stevie Wonder setup the petition to make Martin Luther King’s birthday a public holiday, succeeding, as well as how his father was the first-ever black player to play for Celtic FC.
