Toobe Fresco CD Release Party/Okay Che/Curly Chuck

When: Thu., May 12, 7 p.m. 2016

Growing up on the East side of Cleveland, local rapper Toobe Fresco (formerly C-Ro Del Fresco) listened to music all day long as a youth. When he was 10, he wrote his first song and in seventh grade started 3 Kingz, a hip-hop group. In 2009, he issued first release, Mr. Del-Fresco, and he then put out the Forget Me Not mixtape, the first of his projects to be featured on Livemixtapes, a website devoted to breaking new rappers. Since then, he's put out two more mixtapes and started to pick up some traction with his 2011 EP Visible Thoughts, which received favorable reviews from the local press. Now, the prolific rapper has just released Let Us Dream, an album of hip-hop and R&B tunes that reflect his positive attitude and spirituality. The undulating first single, "Price Tag," features old school synths and hiccuping vocals as Fresco raps, "gotta learn to put a value upon your life/cause money ain't the only value so think twice." Expect to hear it and more at tonight's release party. (Niesel)
