Video: Tree, “All”

April 30, 2012


An easy highlight from Tree’s Sunday School mixtape, "All" captures what the rapper/producer does so well. This video was shot around the Cabrini-Green neighborhood, where project high-rises have been demolished to make way for mixed-income development, and where Tree grew up. Curtis Mayfield was also from the Cabrini area, and it's interesting how Tree manages to capture the divergence between Chicago's soul music history and its rugged, unquestionably impoverished street life, all while sounding unlike anyone else.
