Tree

Blue-collar Chicago rapper Tree and his self-proclaimed “soul trap” bangers have been criminally overlooked during the explosion of Chicago’s post-Chief Keef rap scene. His excellent mixtape, Sunday School II: When Church Lets Out—highlighted by Tree’s melodic, raspy drawl, dusty soul samples and guest spots from Danny Brown and Roc Marciano—is starting to turn the tide. We’re hoping a prime slot at the Pitchfork Music Festival in his hometown will finish the job.
