Blitz The Ambassador‘s latest track, “African In New York” depicts the multifaceted story of the African migrant living in New York City. Flipping a couple well known sound bytes — one from the 1988 classic Coming to America and another from Jay Z‘s “99 Problems” — Blitz gives us a glimpse into the royal arrival and humble adaptation of the African migrant to the big city. From a model’s aspirations to dollar cabs, the Ambassador tells the real hustler’s story, going in over a lively guitar and bass combo. With real in-studio instrumentation — produced by Blitz himself — and exceptionally dope lyrics, Blitz continues to show us why he’s more than just your average master of ceremonies.
