New EP: Tree – The @MCTREEG EP

Tree Like Whoa Scion AV @MCTREEG EPWe’ve been waiting on The @MCTREEG EP ever since “Probably Nu It” and “Like Whoa” were released earlier this month and now it’s finally here. Chicago rapper and producer Tree is the pioneer of soul trap, a hybrid sound that’s thematically a melange of soul’s nourishing hope and trap’s unforgiving ambition. For the instrumentals, Tree combines soul samples with trap elements, resulting in beats that are simultaneously good for slow dancing and turning up. Unless you’re already familiar with Tree, this is like nothing you’ve ever heard before. Stream the EP below and download it here. It’s censored because it was released through Scion A/V, but you’ll get over it.
