CmAuFfBWIAU2GfU

SaveMoney Summer 16 is in full effect — and business is booming. Literally. Chance, Vic, Purp, Sterling and Towkio have all dropped tide-changing releases over the past few months. But today, one of SaveMoney’s best kept secrets is about to make a run for the top — and that man is Brian Fresco. Fresco’s Casanova project is slated to drop in July, and today we get the new single “Higher” which features a guy you might’ve heard of, Chance The Rapper, and Blue Hawaii.

This is a major major release for Fresco — a dude who has a slew of great anthems under his belt. Now the rest of the world is about to be hip, and that’s a good feeling. Fans of Fresco should be sure to grab tickets to his Casanova release show on July 7th at Portage Theater, which will also include performances from Katie Got Bandz, Mic Terror, Warhol.SS, Supa Bwe and more. See the flyer below and be sure to buy tickets here.

For now, though, get high with “Higher” below.

So to help these friends out, I divided the gospel influences on the project into three sections: sounds, lyrics, and featured artists — and explained why this is probably the only rap album from a Chicago artist I could play for a Pastor without getting splashed in the face with holy water.
