I’m really feeling this new joint by Blitz The Ambassador called Internationally Known featuring Sarkodie. To start the beat that Optiks and Blitz produced is pretty crazy mixing that slowed down chopped and screwed vocal with a beat that could either be spit slow or super fast “rapid flow” on. The horns are so sick and they were played live which is really dope! Blitz and Sarkodie chose to spit rapid flow on this and although I’m pretty over this whole rapid flow style, Blitz the Ambassador and Sarkodie actually did it good and still kept it underground. Below is the official description of “Internationally Known”:

Here’s a trivia question: Which emcee did they sample the “Internationally Known” line from and what was the name of the song?
