Gil Scott-Heron, the US poet and songwriter credited with helping inspire the development of rap music, has died at age 62.

Scott-Heron died yesterday at a New York hospital, National Public Radio said, citing his book publisher. He fell ill after returning from a trip to Europe, news reports said.

The Chicago-born artist was called the “Godfather of Rap”, a term he disliked, for his groundbreaking spoken-word performances set to music, including “The Revolution Will Not be Televised” in the early 1970s.

He recorded more than a dozen albums and was hailed as an important influence by hip-hop performers such as Kanye West.
