The Hype Magazine | Who is Blanco Caine?
Who is Blanco Caine and where are you from?
Blanco Caine is an entrepreneur. I'm completely self employed and investing in myself. I'm a father of two, a Gemini (yeah, it's two of me...lol), and an all-around hustler. Oh yeah, I'm a dope ass rapper too! LOL
I'm born, raised, & reside in Chicago...ChiRaq is what most call it. Home of the 6 rings.
Describe your style?
