Blitz The Ambassador & Les Nubians Pen a Letter to “Dear Africa” (Listen & Download)Posted by Nathan S. on 04/01/11 | Filed under Downloads, Underground, Blitz the Ambassador, Les Nubians
"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."
Blitz's upcoming album "Native Sun" drops May 3. Don't get caught sleeping again.
