Tree’s something of an anomaly in Chicago’s current landscape; it’s easy to forget that Chicago was once defined by warm, weathered soul samples instead of drill’s apocalypse-beckoning bombast. His presence is a reminder that there’s room for both; today he and fellow Chicagoan Chris Crack share #TREESWAG, a 7-track EP (with one secret track tucked in) entirely produced by the soul trap originator. It’s cool to hear Tree edge a bit outside his zone here, especially on closing tracks “Off Da Pot” and “Way Past Pimpin.” Saba and C. Rich contribute guest verses. Stream #TREESWAG below, or download it here.
