njpacFLYERThe ever impressive Blitz the Ambassador will follow up his critically-acclaimed debut album, ‘Stereotype’ and follow-up live album ‘Stereolive,’ with the 12-song ‘Native Sun’ , set for release on May 3 worldwide.  The new album is a deeper, more roots-oriented record with the first single, ‘Best I Can’ as well as the much talked about ‘Dear Africa’ with Les Nubians.

But that’s not all there is to expect from the Ghanaian-born, Brooklyn-based MC/Composer.  He was recently in Ghana where he shot a compelling and beautifully shot short film also titled ‘Native Sun.’ The new album provides a vivid soundtrack to the story of a young boy’s daunting pilgrimage from the countryside to the capital city of Accra to find his father, who he only knows from a photo given to him from his deceased mother.

Blitz told Public Radio International (PRI) Afropop Worldwide recently, “We have to create other things that will make our music noticed. It’s very difficult to get anyone to buy music today, so it’s more about creating worlds, so if you create a world that other people are willing to exist in, and they’re willing to support it, and willing to spread the word about it, so we are making a short film that’s gonna add another element to the album, and I’m really excited about it.”

“Stereotype’ hit top ten on iTunes where it remained for a month following its independent release on Blitz’s record label, Embassy MVMT.  Blitz says about his debut effort, “I wanted to pay homage to make people understand that like anything, hip-hop has its lineage. It starts somewhere and it’s gonna go somewhere,” he adds. httpv://vimeo.com/channels/blitz#17678292

The album lead Blitz and his seasoned band, The Embassy Ensemble to tour across the United States, including sharing the stage with Public Enemy at NYC’s Summerstage and The Roots & Talib Kweli at Celebrate Brooklyn! as well as all over Europe hitting festivals like Belgium’s Afro-Latino Festival with Sean Paul and France’s TransMusicales Festival with Bomba Estereo, M.I.A. and Janelle Monae.  Summer 2011 will have Blitz and The Embassy Ensemble all over Europe for more festival runs, in support of ‘Native Sun.’

This Saturday, February 5, Blitz will be performing at NJPAC, in Newark, NJ

In these cases, a monthly rental is the best option because it would be foolish to own a car for such a brief length of time. You can use the rent a car app by One Click Drive for this purpose.

Pros of Renting A Car in Dubai:

Maximum comfort:

When you want to rent a car for a month in Dubai, you can obviously set aside all other concerns. The only thing you have to do is fill up the rental automobile with gas. The car rental providers will handle all additional maintenance charges and paperwork. Additionally, your luxury rental car ought to be free of flaws and in excellent shape. Additionally, if a person purchases an automobile, he or she must register the vehicle with the government and obtain insurance.

In this way, the monthly automobile rental services are made simple and hassle-free, and consumers can rest comfortable knowing that all necessary legal paperwork has been completed. Customers only need to pay for the rental car; nothing else is required of them.

Versatility:

Moreover, There is no need to waste time getting from one place to another. Additionally, they can save time by avoiding the repetitive process of renting a car and returning it.

In Dubai, renting a luxury car or a supercar is common. Therefore, you can select the monthly car rental services if you love cars and wish to drive a new model. For the next month, you can without a doubt upgrade your present rental vehicle to the newest model.

The costs vary depending on the vehicle you select. You must pay the difference in price if the model you want to upgrade is more expensive than the luxury car you previously hired. The same applies if you want to upgrade your rental automobile but save more money for a few months.

Cons of Renting A Car in Dubai:

Cost:

Renting a car in Dubai can be expensive, especially if you’re renting for an extended period of time. The higher rental costs are the main barrier preventing people from renting a car. Compared to taking a bus or rail, renting a car is more expensive.

Although public transportation has very low costs, it does not give access to specific areas. Additionally, hiring a taxi or cab is frequently necessary and is very expensive.

Responsibility:

As a renter, you’re responsible for any damages to the car while it’s in your possession. traffic and Parking: Dubai’s traffic can be congested, especially during peak hours. Finding parking in busy areas can also be a challenge.

Hidden Fees:

Some car rental companies may charge additional fees for things like GPS navigation systems or child seats, which can add to the overall cost of the rental.

Insurance:

Car rental insurance can be required and can add to the overall cost of the rental.

Local Regulations:

Renters must be familiar with the local traffic laws and regulations, and failure to comply can result in fines or other penalties.

Maintenance:

The renter is responsible for maintaining the car during the rental period, which can include filling up on gas, checking oil and tire pressure, etc.

You must employ a driver:

Having to hire a driver is one of the primary drawbacks of renting a car in Dubai. Especially when moving throughout the city, this can be costly and time-consuming. Taxis, on the other hand, are accessible and reasonably priced. The drawback of having a driver is that your itinerary may be less in your hands. In addition, if you get lost or have an accident, the driver could be held accountable.

On the whole, pros clearly outweigh cons. So select a car rental in Satwa Dubai, Business Bay, or Palm Jumeirah option and embark on a convenient journey.
