NEW MUSIC: Blitz the Ambassador – Dear Africa ft. Les Nubians, Tour Dates
by Winston "Stone" Ford
I remember a few years ago when a Couch Sessions reader who was bar-tending at a concert venue sent me a text at 2AM. “YOU GOTTA CHECK BLITZ THE AMBASSADOR,” it said. Ever since that moment I’ve been a fan. Blitz is hands down one of my favorite artists in hip-hop right now. The NYC-based MC focuses on his African orgins to give a unique and fresh sound, rocking with a full live band and giving hands down one of the best live shows I’ve seen in hip-hop.
Fortunately for you Blitz is finishing his latest project Native Sun which drops in May. The lead track features none other than our favorites Les Nubians. Check it.
