Yonie Solomon is back. His Unofficial Kanye West LOVE/HATE Video caused an uproar on the Internet last year.
This year he has embarked on a project that so monumental, it involves tying the nation of beautiful people (Ethiopia) with the nation who is obsessed with beauty (America).

Gospel Rapper Bizzle gets industry fame off of his last 2 dis records of Jay-Z.
Even though he is one of many, many Holy Hip Hop artists that have taken exception to Mr. Braggadocious, Bizzle has managed to garner national press in the process. This makes me wonder a few things…
1. Why does anyone care?
2. Does this mean that others (bloggers, artists, hip hop fans, Industry Execs) secretly agree with Bizzle?
3. Are we looking for Jay to reply?
4. Does this mean that all we have to do is drop a beef song to get national exposure?
I don’t know. I never have and never will be a Jay-Z fan, but I can’t say I’m a Bizzle Fan either. I am, however a fan of art. From that stand point I challenge myself to say, “Talent at what cost?” The host of reasons that Jay doesn’t appeal are all around what he stands for in contrast to what I stand for. We just don’t see life the same way. Many of the points Bizzle makes strike emotions in me, as well as those who already don’t like Jay-Z, but what is gained from this? Can there be anything gained besides more people hearing their first gospel rap song?
So….Who is Kanye West, Nas and Common calling the next BIG thing in Hip Hop? None other that the Ghanaian rapper, BLITZ the Ambassador! He has a style all his own-along with a blazin horn section. Yeah, you heard me right, a horn section. When was the last time you went to a hip hop show and the main attraction was an emcee with a horn section.
That is not the only thing that sets him at the front of the pack. He is at the forefront of a mass exodus away from radio music. Dude has rhyme-pattern and style that reminds me of Black Thought of the Legendary Roots Crew. Make sure you check out his site at: http://embassy.mvmt.com/. You can see LIVE clips, sample the music, or cop some gear. Or, you can check out my man right here…
