Blitz The Ambassador x Seun Kuti 'Make You No Forget'

Blitz The Ambassador and Seun Kuti deliver on brass heavy hip-life track 'Make You No Forget'


Ahead of his upcoming Afripolitan Dreams album due April 28, Ghanaian-born Brooklyn-based rapper Blitz the Ambassador has dropped "Make You No Forget," an afrobeat-meets-hiplife banger featuring Seun Kuti.  In classic Blitz style, the track melds old school hip-hop with invigorating highlife guitar riffs and killer brass lines. The retro chorus of female vocals singing "make you no forget where you're from" coupled with djembes and Blitz's rapping transports the listener to a land in between Brooklyn and Accra. Stream "Make You No Forget" below and, also, watch out for Seun Kuti's new album A Long Way to the Beginning dropping May 24th in the US and out now in the UK.
