Blitz the Ambassador Live @ Summerstage in Central Park, NYC

August 17, 2010 1:47 pm

To cap off a breakout summer, which included two tours of Europe, a Celebrate Brooklyn performance with The Roots, and the release of an epic music video, Blitz the Ambassador performed with the legendary Public Enemy at Central Park’s Summer Stage on August 15th.

“Public Enemy is the group that made me start listening to hip hop back in Ghana,” says Blitz. “My older brother turned me on this new music I had never heard before, and i was like ‘wow, these are young black people speaking with power and purpose,’ I had never heard that before. I remember when Public Enemy came to Ghana in 1992 it was a HUGE deal. I didn’t get to go to the concert then, but now I get to share the stage with guys that literally inspired me to be the man I am today. It’s definitely a dream come true,” added Blitz.
