Blitz the Ambassador + J. Ivy

Fast-rising Ghanaian rapper Blitz the Ambassador raises his voice over soulful grooves spiked with West African and flamenco flourishes, courtesy of the Embassy Ensemble, Blitz's outrageously funky band. Tonight's show at the Apollo's newly opened café has Blitz & Co. joined by poet J. Ivy—whose fans include Talib Kweli and Sharon Stone. We've a feeling this is going to be excellent.
