Rory Fresco; The mid-western based artist making music for the world


Rory Fresco, the 19 year old artist out of Kansas City is paving a lane of his own and plans to stay popping for a while. Ever since 2016 Rory has been in the spotlight, after his hit song Lowkey was played after Kanye’s Real Friends and emasssed over 5.6 million views on Soundcloud. Shortly after Lowkey, Rory made the conscious decision to sign with the massive record label Epic Records and began working on his first project MadWorld. After the release of mad world and it shortly being taken down off Soundcloud after its release, Rory quickly shifted his focus onto his next project. So after months of promotion Rory dropped his second project Teen Spirit, this release went phenomenal as it was on every blog from XXL to Hot New Hip Hop and needless to say this project deserved all the publicity it got and then some. From Rory taking you through his high school years to telling stories of how friends have changed up on him since he has gained exposure this project has everything it needs to get your attention and hold it for a while.  His auto-tuned voice and catchy bars truly made this project something special at times even reminiscing a young Travis Scott with his flow and catchy hooks. Soon after the release of this project Rory announced his first headlining show in his hometown of Kansas City, “You Don’t Deserve This” with fellow Kansas City rapper Gee Watts. This show went phenomenal as it sold out and went up as everyone expected, since for most of the fans this was their first chance to see Rory perform as well.  So a few weeks later Rory and his crew performed at Flyover Festival with the likes of Lil Uzi Vert, GucciMane, and Playboi Carti. Then just a week later he announced a small tour with XXL freshman A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and fellow Kansas City rapper SuperShaqGonzoe, Rory simply keeps taking every opportunity he gets and making the best of it. So from his always growing and evolving sound to his always growing and loyal fan base that most artists would kill to have, Rory definitely is killing the game right now. So as he says ” Imma be a popstar, Imma be on billboard” well at this rate he won’t have to wait long to achieve those goals.
