Video: Album Teaser from Blitz the Ambassador's New Album, Native Sun


Blitz the Ambassador's newest effort, Native Sun, a follow up to his critically acclaimed Stereotype, will be released on May 3. The video above is a clip of the short film Blitz taped when he went back to his homeland in Ghana. His album provides a vivid and realistic soundtrack to the story of a young boy's daunting pilgrimage from the countryside to the capital city of Accra to find his father, who he only knows from a photo given to him from his deceased mother.  For more from Blitz, sign up for this TRIP TO GHANA, featuring a performance by the man himself, in his home country.  I'ma start saving my pennies right now.
