This is the future.  Transplanted from Accra City to Brooklyn at the age of 12, Blitz the Ambassador makes a particular brand of hip-hop, recorded and performed with a live band, and influenced by the High Life sounds he grew up around in Ghana.

Here’s a video of Blitz The Ambassador performing his song “Remembering The Future,” off of his critically acclaimed ’09 album, Stereotype. The clip was filmed for MTVU with a 12-piece band in a studio in Brooklyn, NY and will air in February in full.

UPCOMING WEST COAST TOUR DATES:

The singer in the beginning is ‘Balla Tounkara’ and he’s playing the kora, in case you were wondering like I was.
