London's rap prodigy Blanco is back with a fresh visual for his latest single "Ponzi Scheme," following a dynamic performance at Glastonbury and a recent trip to Brazil.

Blanco, one of London's hottest rap talents, is setting the stage ablaze with his latest official video for "Ponzi Scheme," following a standout set at Glastonbury’s Platform 23 stage. This new release is a visual feast, capturing moments from his recent adventure in Brazil and showcasing his signature lyrical prowess over vibrant, South American-inspired beats.


"Ponzi Scheme," Blanco's second official release of 2024, is a testament to his evolving artistry. The track, produced by FS Green and Dave Nunes (Soulection), features skippy percussion and evocative strings that transport listeners straight to the heart of Brazil. Known for his whip-smart lyricism, the Kennington native delves into the complex emotions of achieving long-sought goals only to find they're not as fulfilling as imagined.


“It’s a song about being in a situation where you finally have something that you longed for - whether that be a financial situation, person, or a materialistic thing - and on achieving this goal you realize ‘it's not all it's cracked up to be,’” Blanco explains.



Blanco's journey in 2023 was nothing short of monumental. He dropped his highly acclaimed mixtape "Rebourne," a collection of twelve tracks featuring collaborations with heavyweights like Kojey Radical, Avelino, and AratheJay, and production from talents such as Litek and Jens Muller. The mixtape's standout track, "Brilliant Mind," dominated the Official Charts for six weeks and received extensive airplay, further cementing Blanco’s place in the rap game.


Starting with the drill scene as a key member of the Harlem Spartans, Blanco's track "Kennington Where It Started" remains a genre-defining hit. His musical journey has seen him evolve from these roots, drawing inspiration from US drill pioneers like Lil Jay and Chief Keef, to becoming a versatile artist blending multiple genres.


His fearless approach to music and global perspective allows him to continually push the envelope and redefine what it means to be an artist today.
