Okayafrica Video: Blitz the Ambassador — "Dikembe!"

Blitz the Ambass Dikembe african hip-hop

Always good for the best in African hip-hop, Okayafrica put us on to Blitz the Ambassador's newest visuals for his single "Dikembe!," apparently an ode to NBA star DikembeMutombo. Off Blitz's upcoming EP The Warm Up, the video for "Dikembe" chronicles a sort of "day-in-the-life" of the Ghanian rapper while in Morocco and the layered images come about as fast as his rhymes. Sonically speaking, the track features a classic boom-bap sound and gives off a distinctly New York Gritty quality with distorted guitar riffs coursing through the music. If the video below leaves you wanting more from Blitz, stay tuned for The Warm Up and read on for more details from Okayafrica:

Blitz — contrasting an elegant red cloth with a bold all-black aesthetic — rides around the streets of Rabat, Morocco in the flat bed of a rickshaw while showcasing his rapid-fire lyrical style. From street markets to the perennial urban architecture, the video accentuates the local Moroccan culture, shedding light on the country’s capital and the beautiful people that give it life. With raw imagery and an iconic “finger wave,” Blitz stands tall, once again proving himself to be a powerful presence in the game.
