Breathe (feat. Bob Murat) - Blitz the Ambassador

What you know about hip-hop will change as soon as you listen to this track. This dude is freaking incredible. And by the way, that is HIS horn section. He has a live band on this record. With horns and everything. This album is freakin awesome. This track is awesome. Real music, right here.

Free Your Mind

Blitz the Ambassador: Free Your Mind

Staring at the land of my birth
With a bird’s eye view
See the truth and it hurts
Still waiting for the people
To rise up on the continent
Still they got all our Kings divided
Stealing all the resources
While they lie to us
From the World Bank, it goes to the IMF
And the puppet politicians
Are supporting their policies
Selling out their own people
To the government overseas
So whatever they do, we do
Whatever they think, we think
It’s so insane
How the richest continent
Got most of the poor people
They pillage us and wonder why
we are not equal
Got a lot of nerve to call us Third World
When we were the first architects in this world
But remember ain’t nobody saving an African
Only an African can save himself

Free your mind, free, free your mind, free your mind,
colonial mentality.

Blitz the Ambassador - Something to Believe


Directed by Terence Nance, the “Something to Believe,” addresses the detachment we all battle when faced with the the world’s overwhelming issues. “It’s hard to think about all the problems in the world without getting a little overwhelmed. So, a lot of times we just ignore things.” Blitz said
