Produced by Tree
We said it last week, but I’ll say it again: the artwork for TREESWAG is awesome. No seriously. Artwork is, well, a lost art nowadays, so it’s nice to see someone put some creativity and thought into still images. People forget that these images are your calling cards. Yeah, people consume the product differently, but the images still hold power. You should know that, though. Common sense.
But I digress.
We told you this collabo project from Crack and Tree was coming, and today they show and prove with the first leak, “Cuts.” How does it cut? I think very deeply. Tree on production, with Crack on the vocals. Tree and Crack in the cut, that’s a scary sight.
Peep it below.

Soultrap Tree urges to all competition to stay away in his latest visual offering from his MCTREEG EP, presented by Scion AV. The video was filmed during Tree’s trip to Austin, Texas for SXSW and provides a look at what Tree’s visit was like.
Moment of silence for all of those mixtapes scattered across 6th street at the 1:22 mark. Check out the official video for “Stay Away” above and keep an eye out for Tree’s “God Like” video, due out soon.
Chris Crack switches things up a bit for the latest installment of his #FreeSwag EP’s and grabs Soultrap Tree for #TreeSwag. That’s right — Crack’s gearing up to serve everyone a seven-track EP produced by Tree G.
The EP also serves as the first volume in Tree’s upcoming Soultrap EP series and will include guest contributions from Saba, C. Rich and MC Tree himself. Feast your eyes on the artwork (by BFunky) above and expect the first offering from #TreeSwag to impact very soon.
Producers Sean C and LV grab Tree G, OG Bun B, 100s and J. Ivy for “Get My Money Up”, which you can get an earful of below. The collaboration is from Sean C and LV’s Loud Dreams Vol. 1 LP, which was officially released today and includes original tracks from a lot of your favorite emcees.
We’ve been waiting on this joint for a while now. Tree and J. Ivy’s contribution is one of the standouts from the LP, so it was only right that we share it. Check out what Tree, Ivy, Bun and 100s cooked up below.
With Soul Trap Tree on the beat, Paypa gives everyone the final offering from his forthcoming The Session EP. This one’s better than good — listen for yourself below.
The Session impacts March 28th. Mark your calendars.
During a recent trip to NYC, MC Tree posted up outside of Sylvia’s Restaurant with Chauncy Sherod of CharlieRED and spoke on Soul Trap, his place in Chicago’s music scene, the reality of the city’s street culture and much more.
Creative Control was on hand to catch it all on film, so press play above, listen up and get some soul food for thought in your life.
Sidenote: Hopefully, Tree and Chauncy being in the same place is an indication that a collaboration is coming or in the works.
Produced by Cutta
Inspired by a trip Tree and Chris Crack took to ATL, they decided to dedicate this joint to their own personal heaven, Follies. Hey, I’ve been to Follies and it’s awesome! Don’t know what it is? Google it and thank me later.
Check out the evident chemistry of Crack and Tree over this Cutta instrumental below.

The Rapping Bastard and MC Tree trade bars on “Profound”, which you can check out the newly released video for above. This just a taste of what’s to come from Vic, who’s actually the newest recruit of Sean Price’s Ruck Down camp.
Keep an ear out for Vic’s Vision Pipes EP with TDE and Chicago’s own Johnny Rocket, due out next month.
Little known fact: Tree got soul trapper of the year four times in a raw. That’s no small feat. Tree goes for his fifth championship with this video for “Like Whoa” which is another joint from his very-solid EP, MCTREEG EP. You better get that now if you don’t already. And no, Black Rob is not involved.
