Blitz the Ambassador        

Rapper, composer, and producer

Blitz the Ambassador is a Ghanian-born, New York-based rapper, composer, and producer who combines a lightning-fast mind, the political boldness of Chuck D, and the groove sense of Fela Kuti to unleash psychedelic Afrobeat colors and triple-time rhymes on his album "Native Sun" (Embassy MVMT). With the DIY skills of hip hop's old-school instigators and drawing from decades of lo-fi innovators across West Africa, Blitz crafts his tracks from scratch, often laying down thirty or more lines for each song. "I don't have any music theory training. I have no idea what I'm doing. That means I do things that a trained composer would never do. That's when it gets interesting."
