Native Sun by Blitz the Ambassador on Apple Music

12 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Born in Ghana and based in New York City, Blitz the Ambassador was first introduced to hip-hop via his older brother's copy of Pubic Enemy's classic It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back. He began his rap career in 2000 and almost immediately won Best New Artist at the Ghana Music Awards. Soon after, he moved to the States, started performing live, and recording his debut album Soul Rebel, released in 2004. Since then, he's dropped three more full-lengths (Double Consciousness, Stereotype, and StereoLive), and now presents us with Native Sun. Lush production draws heavily from his heritage, with Afro-beat and high-life vibes and plenty of local percussion and exotic instrumentation supporting hyper-dense rhyme schemes that are relentlessly positive and inspirational to listeners of all backgrounds. For hip-hop heads tired of the same cliché raps and interchangeable beats, this album is a much-needed breath of fresh air.
