‘Bisa’ meaning ‘Ask’ in Twi is his latest track featuring ‘African heavyweights’ Nneka and Ty.

'Bisa' Lyrics

[Intro]

[Hook: Nneka, [Blitz the Ambassador]]
Bisa, [What you asking]
Wonyim a Bisa, [Who you asking]
Bisa oh Bisa, [What you asking]
Wonyim a Bisa, Bisa na yɛn kankyerɛ wo oh,
Bisa, [What you asking]
Wonyim a Bisa, [Who you asking]
Bisa oh Bisa, [What you asking]
Wonyim a Bisa, Bisa na yɛn kankyerɛ wo oh,

[Verse 1: Blitz the Ambassador]
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.

[Hook: Nneka, [Blitz the Ambassador]]
Bisa, [What you asking]
Wonyim a Bisa, [Who you asking]
Bisa oh Bisa, [What you asking]
Wonyim a Bisa, Bisa na yɛn kankyerɛ wo oh,
Bisa, [What you asking]
Wonyim a Bisa, [Who you asking]
Bisa oh Bisa, [What you asking]
Wonyim a Bisa, Bisa na yɛn kankyerɛ wo oh,

[Bridge: Nneka]

[Verse 2: Ty]
I speak for the unfiltered and the unfettered
Parents taught me well help to boost up the method
I write through the wrist though the twists takes effort
Please don’t blink you may just miss the message
You been lied to, tricked, bamboozled and whipped
History been flipped, knicked and then ripped into pieces
Some say peace is not the word to play
I tattoo shackles on my neck on my vertebrae
Dear child of a lesser the plan is to see you buckle quick under
Or succumb to a better vision supplied by oppressors
Hear me out down to the last letter
REMOVE ALL religious obligations
Especially if they house colonial modifications
Manipulation of soul spirit and self esteem
No self respect no wonder I don’t like the self I’m
Seeing.

[Hook: Nneka, [Blitz the Ambassador]]

[Outro: Nneka]
