Rapper Blitz the Ambassador-the "Ghanaian Chuck D"-has emerged as one of hip-hop's most respected and conscientious artists, seemingly immune to the genre's clichés. His album Stereotype-which he showcased at a packed Central Park SummerStage concert-eschews samples for a richly layered live sound, while his latest effort, Native Sun, combines a mélange of African idioms with rapping that is at once fluid, forceful, and mindful of history.
