Okayafrica Audio: Blitz The Ambassador x Nneka - "Love On The Run"
The homies Okayafrica sprung a funked-out single on us with the premiere of Ghanaian MC Blitz The Ambassador and globetrotting soulstress Nneka's "Love On The Run", off Blitz's long-awaited Afropolitan Dreams LP. The track is painted with straight swaggering funk; peppered muted guitars, a big swinging dirty drum track and Nneka's graceful falsetto on the hook (something like Biggie's "Gimme The Loot" and Marvin's "Inner City Blues" rolled into one funky boom-bap treat.) Afropolitan Dreams is out April 28th, but you can listen to the the first offering from Blitz The Ambassador and Nneka below. Head over to Okayafrica to peep some behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the LP.
