Off Tha’ Wall – Tree
One of the new faces of the Chi-Town rap scene, Tree, tells us about growing up in Chicago, his musical influences, and some of his worst fashion trends.
Chicago rapper and soul trapper number one Tree kicks it with us for this episode of Off Tha’ Wall. The midwest crooner stepped on the scene in 2012 with his debut mixtape Sunday School following up in 2013 with the critically-acclaimed Sunday School II: When Church Lets Out. On his latest project, he teamed up with Scion AV to release Scion AV Presents: THE @MCTREEG EP.
Tree is known for his distinct style, mixing elements of soul, funk, and blues. The Windy City lyricist crafts real life raps with a raspy snarl, spitting his soul over dope samples and trap drums.
For Off Tha’ Wall, Tree compares Jambalaya to music, speaks on being influenced by Jay Z, and recalls growing up on church music and Chicago foot work. He also talks about participating in early ’90s trends like overalls and Billion Bay coats. He also gives Drake album of the year and even sings some Jodeci for us, well, the females among us.
