Gil Scott-Heron, Jamie xx – I’ll Take Care Of U

In the realm of unexpected collaborations, the one between Gil Scott-Heron and Jaime xx of The XX seems, at first blush, one of the most unlikely. Any skepticism about whether or not the former black militant and this British neophyte producer would work well together is quickly laid to rest within the first few bars of “I’ll Take Care Of You.” xx’s dancing, yet melancholic production serves a perfect back drop for Scoot-Heron’s craggy vocals. I’ll take care of you appears on I’m New Here, Scott-Heron’s thirteenth studio album on XL Recordings.
