Video: Blitz the Ambassador 'The Voice of the Native Son' Interview Pt. 2


"Hip-hop music is part of a long fabric of African music" pretty much sums up Blitz the Ambassador's approach to this whole rap thing. The statement is one of several gems he drops in this second interview/live show video (see the first) following Blitz and The Mighty Embassy Ensemble's stay at the World Music Festival in Chicago. Watch the full interview with performances of "Accra Blues" and "Best I Can" above. Clip by Jamaar J, Cam Be and Jeff Baraka.
