Blitz The Ambassador - Native Sun (Jakarta)

We haven't been as excited about an African hip hop album since Emmanuel Jal's, 'Ceasefire' album. Most African hip hop seems to ignore their rich musical heritate as a ready source of sample material or inspiration but Blitz has incorporated Afrobeat, highlife and kora music into an old school hip hop framework to produce a wonderfully warm, cohesive album with some conscious lyrics.

We're really happy to give you this opportunity to stream the album via Youtube a week before it's official release date. Don't forget to buy the album though if you like it and want him to produce more great records. You can pre-order the album here.
