Watch This: “Something to Believe” - A Short Film Featuring Blitz the Ambassador

BY , July 29, 2010

Today the mighty Embassy MVMT launched “Something to Believe” a short film/music video from World Up favorite Blitz the Ambassador. In true Blitz fashion, this piece leads each viewer to nod his head, as well as use it.

Directed by Terence Nance, the film addresses the detachment we all battle, when faced with the the world’s overwhelming issues. Blitz explains his connection with this dilemma, “it’s hard to think about all the problems in the world without getting a little overwhelmed. So, a lot of times we just ignore things. I think Africa has suffered a lot because people choose to remain ignorant, rather than address the issues that are right in front of our faces.”

Nance’s direction, cinematography by Shawn Peters, and the always stellar sounds of Blitz (and his band, the Embassy Ensemble) make this a visual and audio delight. Blitz once again leaves us with hope renewed for the future of hip hop. If you’re looking for something to believe in, Blitz is not a bad place to start.

Be sure to check out the video below and cop Blitz’s music here.
And if you are in NYC don’t miss Blitz playing w/ Public Enemy at Central Park Summerstage on August 15th.
