Blitz The Ambassador – Dear Africa f. Les Nubians

blame it on Meka March 30, 2011

The Nigerian in me cosigns the hell out of this track, while the rappity-rap rap loving side of me cosigns the fuck out of this track. Blitz’ Native Sun drops May 6th. More info on the song…

A blindingly bright clarity drives Blitz the Ambassador. With a spot-on sense of flow, he name-checks Basquiat and Lumumba, evokes lovelorn sighs on Accra buses, émigré alienation, history’s shadows. All set to swirls of brass, distorted guitars, and the crackle and pop of old amplifiers. With a lightning-fast mind, the political boldness of Chuck D, and the sixth groove sense of Fela Kuti, the Ghanaian-born, New York-based MC, composer, and producer unleashes psychedelic Afrobeat colors and triple-time rhymes on Native Sun. The album was sparked in Accra yet forged in the African diaspora.

You can check the rest of the description in the “Lyrics” part of iTunes.
