Blitz the Ambassador ft. Tumi - "Heaven"

For as long as I've followed his career, Blitz the Ambassador has put on for Africa. For the latest cut from his forthcoming album Diasporadical, he takes his unique blend of the rhythms and sounds of Africa and the American-born hip-hop flavor and turns it into a bright, blazing number entitled "Heaven."

The horns and live aspects on this? They feel like some new school Fela Kuti, but they are riding over some rougher breakbeats. Blitz and Tumi (from Tumi And The Volume) breathe life into the song, which is produced by Blitz (with some live guitar and trumpet thrown in).

Diasporadical is set to drop on December 12, but you can pre-order it via Jakarta right now. Stream "Heaven" below, and if you want more from the album, check out the previously-released single "Juju Girl."
