Blanco Flexes His Chess Skills In "Magneto" Video

July 05, 2021

Kennington's Blanco returns with the follow up single titled "Magneto" which comes after his respective features with Central Cee and Darkoo on the hit singles "The Great Escape" and "She Like". "Magneto" sees him bounce through the mellow production from 169 with a laid-back flow that makes it all look effortless.

Pulling inspiration from Stan Lee's X-Men, the accompanying visuals from Jrelz Media see Blanco facing his opponent in a tense game of chess, mirroring the well-known scene where Professor X and Magneto battle it out on the board game.

After an intensive build-up of melodic bangers and thought-out wordplay, Blanco has also just announced the release of his debut mixtape, City Of God, named after the notorious flick of the same name, which is expected to land in August. With rap innovators like Central Cee, NSG, K-Trap and Loski set to make appearances across the project, City Of God looks set to be another compelling offering from the rapidly ascending rhymer.

While we countdown the weeks until Blanco's highly anticipated mixtape release (August 6), soak up the vibes in "Magneto" below.
