Rolling Stone hails Blitz the Ambassador as “the future of African music.” This Ghanaian-born rapper brings a unique mix of Afrobeat and hip-hop to Nat Geo. Growing up in Accra, then Brooklyn, Blitz was influenced by music from traditional African kora…to Michael Jackson…to rap. With his lightning-fast mind, the political boldness of Chuck D., a sixth-groove sense of Fela Kuti, and a tight, versatile band, Blitz the Ambassador is “leading the way into a new dawn of global hip-hop.” (Austin 360.com.)
