Meet Ghanian Born Blitz the Ambassador… ‘Dying to Live’

Blitz the Ambassador is a talented emcee, singer and musician who is from Ghana and now lives in Brooklyn who’s been making a whole lot of noise as of late. He recently lot of ¬†touched down in the Bay Area at La Pena Cultural Center and wrecked shop, bringing with him a keen musicianship, influences from Fela Kuti and his deep love of Hi-Life and Hip Hop. ¬†Toward the end of his set he ripped a version of his song ‘Dying to Live‘ which on his album features former Fugee member John Forte. This version was incredibly moving.. in fact chilling especially when you consider him and the guitarist hooked up for the first time earlier that day.. Definitely Blitz is someone to watch for in 2010
