The EP:

California rapper Blanco has released his Molly & Amber EP via his own indie label, Guerilla Entertainment. Molly & Amber was produced in-full by Grammy-winning producer Bosko, who previously produced songs for E-40, Kanye West, J. Cole, and Big Boi. The project includes features from frequent collaborators Husalah, Messy Marv, and late Bay Area legend The Jacka. “The album title is a double entendre,” Blanco explains, “I personally have experienced the effects of drugs and the effects of having more than one woman in my life. Each track was supposed to be a reflection of a drug and a type of girl. For example, “Britney” is cocaine and the track is also named that because of Britney Spears’ crazy moments.”

Blanco recently released the title track, “Molly & Amber,” via YouHeardThatNew, rapping and harmonizing about his hustling mentality atop a piano-guided production. The Berkeley, California native heated up the summer last year with “Block Party,” a joint effort with YG and producer duoCookin’ Soul, which received praised from Complex, HotNewHipHop, and Stereogum, and more. Blanco’s extensive catalogue includes a series of music videos as well as projects with The Jacka,Nipsey HussleAraab Muzik, and Yukmouth and several solo projects following his 2011 debut,American Psycho. In an interview with HipHopDX documenting the rapper’s entrepreneurial drive, as well as his trials and tribulations stemming from a $50 million medical marijuana business, the Bay area native proclaimed, “I care more about the [music] I put out than I care about the sales. I care more about what I’m attempting to do. It’s about the whole journey.”
