He is the third of four children and attended the renowned Achimota School.
After graduation from Achimota School in 2000, Blitz (as he had come to be known) was first recognized by Ghanaian Ace producer Hammer of The Last Two. Blitz was asked to come to the studio the next day after delivering an impressive eight bars upon meeting Hammer, who wasted no time in putting him on wax. Soon after, in 2001, he moved to the United States of America to study at Kent State University in Ohio.
lieutenant was while studying for his bachelor"s degree in Business Administration that he developed his skills as a live artist, performing at several live shows and opening for iconic rappers such as Rakim as well as recording a self-released album, Soul Rebel (2004), under the moniker Blitz.
After graduation, Blitz moved to New York City to pursue his dream. In New York City, Blitz recorded another album, Double Consciousness (2005), and more recently he released Stereotype, a live-instrument-heavy musical exploration, that tests the limits of Hip Hop.
Drawing from his diverse musical background, he immersed himself in the project with explicit intent of changing Hip Hop forever. After three long years of recording, Blitz took the album to several major labels.
Getting the major label run around one too many times, Blitz decided to go it alone.
He established a label, Embassy MVMT and is now connected to The Roots community initiative Okayplayer. In late 2009, he was chosen as of one Beyond Race Magazine"s "50 Emerging Artists," resulting in a spot in the publication"s #11 issue (with Bodega Girls and J Cole on the cover), as well as an exclusive Q&A for the magazine"s site. In 2011, he released "Feelin" High" with the French singer Ben Mazue, and in 2012, we can hear him on the album Tetra of the French electronic crew C2C. Blitz has also frequently collaborated with Professor A.L.I. featuring on "Things Fall Apart" along with Raekwon in 2011, on the remix "Things Still Fall Apart" in 2012, and on his song "The Mic Shall Inherit The Earth" off of the "XFactor" album in 2015.
