Hood Shakespeare Blanco was Bourne with bars 

In another world Blanco is a lecturer of English Language at Oxford

Have you seriously taken in Blancos music? Because he is not a joke. From the Harlem days Blancos verse was always a verse you waited to hear in anticipation. It was that "kennington where it started" verse for me, when a young Blanco came in like "step round here whats good whats good" *shivers* Since then it has been non-stop from "solomon rondon" to "pull up", Blanco has not let up. Now he is on the cinematic vibes with a preview of his new video paying homage to X mens Magneto. ( I can already hear the word play)

His bars are a true testament to the talent that exists on the UK music scene, he has proven to be purely talent driven with his ability to pluck a punchline out of thin air. YO! its getting me gassed even writing about it, the persistence the passion and precision of his delivery are on point; ALWAYS. 

" 2 black hands on a wap...sepsis" Blanco goes the completely opposite way you think the bar is going to go, and with just over a million monthly Spotify streams, the skies the limit for the hoods Shakespeare.
