Blitz The Ambassador 'Success'

Watch Blitz The Ambassador jet-set in his Tokyo and Morocco-shot video for "Success."


Blitz The Ambassador, New York City's finest Ghanaian rapper, showcases his jet-setting in the Tokyo and Morocco-shot video for "Success." Like its title implies, the track is a celebration of Blitz and fellow diaspora artists' achievements — they treated African artists like 'nope! you don't belong here' / now we're blowing up and they're like 'huh? something's wrong here — soundtracked by his signature highlife influenced hip-hop sound. "Success" will feature in Blitz The Ambassador's upcoming Afropolitan Dreams album due March 25. Watch below.
