Gil Scott-Heron & Brian Jackson - Midnight Band: The First Minute Of A New Day (1974)

Amazing album by Gil Scott-Heron and Brian Jackson. You will hear many samples used in todays hip hop on here but more importantly is the social commentary that is prevalent here. Songs like The Liberation Song and Pardon Our Analysis give you an artistic view of the black artist of this time while providing a gripping landscape of music.

5. Pardon Our Analysis (We Beg Your Pardon)
