‘Bisa’ – Blitz The Ambassador (Feat. Nneka & Ty)

bisaAfter the two last leaks of his upcoming EP ‘Warm UpBlitz the Ambassador drops this great globalisation-critique song that features Hip Hop veterans Nneka from Nigeria and Ty from UK. Listening to the (Tismé produced) song you will definitely start liking its easy flow and Nnekas chorus. But this song, which itself is a product of a artistic globalisation processes – recorded in NY, Paris and London – criticises heavily the unjustified and cruel practices by global corporations. ‘Bisa‘ means ‘Ask’ in the Ghanaian language “Twi” and reminds all of us to question the current status of globalisation.

We thank these three artists for their wake up call and for remembering us that Hip Hop was and will always be a politically and socially relevant music genre.

Look at how we living, Bodies are free but our minds are in prison,
Controlled by the system no longer we fall victim,
From Tahrir Square to Madison Square the streets are crammed,
Revolution will not be televised or instagramed,
The tables are turning the people are rising and burning,
Overthrow the corporations that are steadily earning,
So death to Monsanto, Death to Halliburton, Death to De Beers,
Death to Shell oil, Just look at what they did to Ken Saro-Wiwa,
Hanged him by the neck, murdered every other leader,
Either or war is how they making they funds,
Show me a factory in Africa thats manufacturing guns,
Yet theres AK 47’s in every village but no food,
So the kids grow up and learn the same rules,
Violence that you sow is the violence that you reap,
Bisa oh Bisa, You ask what you seek.”
