He started getting in to the rap scene around 2004 right after he heard the song En Honor A La Verdad by Vico C. He then continued honing his skills with his group called HNC, (High Note Clan). It's in 2016 when he meets the french producer Yoroglyphe, They soon started working together and in 2019 is where Blanko ekama's career really began with his first single "Roll It Up"...
