Produced by Bobby Johnson
Ace B8gie impresses yet again, this time making waves alongside another one of Chicago’s finest, Tree, with the O.G. Bobby Johnson-produced, “Make Believe.” And yes, the Bobby Johnson is the same Bobby Johnson who produced Que’s “O.G. Bobby Johnson.” Got it?
The good news is that there is plenty more from Ace B8gie and Bobby Johnson on the way, and you can expect more from these two on B8gie’s upcoming, The B8gie Foo’ Blues EP, which drops this summer. Bobby also produced Ace’s “F*** A Plan B” which is still one of the best songs of the past six months.
Today, two of the most distinct voices in the city give us “Make Believe.” Straight truth serum. Give it a listen below.

One of my favorite records from Chris Crack and Tree’s collaborative effort, TreeSwag, is without a doubt “CUTS.” The beat knocks while the verbals cut deep. The good news? Today we have a video for it — featuring Crackavelli at his most flamboyant. It’s a true players holiday on this one. You earn bonus points if you spot the Twins senior picture. Ha!
Also, if you hadn’t heard already, Chris Crack is playing our next FSD + Red Bull Sound Select show at Reggies on June 11th. Juvenile is headlining, while Sicko Mobb, Kit and Supreme Cuts round out the bill. You can gain entry with a $3 RSVP right here, right now.
Look at Tree. He’s on his grind. Seriously, take a look. He’s headed to Europe this week? What are you doing? I can’t top that, that’s for sure. In honor of Tree’s recently-announced European tour, he’s decided to let loose a loosie from the Tree files. This one is called, what else, “Look At Me.”
Hit the jump for a special message from Tree himself, and to check out the official dates for his tour. Oh, and to hear the new joint. If you’re across the pond, you better be sure to check him out.
Tree gives us a new/old song, where he goes in over Kayne West’s “Devil In A New Dress” instrumental, which he recorded back in 2010. You rarely hear Tree attack industry beats, but if he wants to he can do that great as well. No one and nothing is safe from his wrath.
Ooh lawd, we’ve been waiting on this one. The newborn baby from Chris Crack and Tree has finally arrived. Every leak thus far from TreeSwag has been fire flame, so hearing this full, completed project brings us much joy.
Saba and C. Rich are on hand to add their additive swag to TreeSwag, but the real stars here are Tree and Crackaveli, who have sure fire chemistry throughout. It’s only seven songs deep, but best believe it packs a lot of punch. Download, stream and share with your friends below. Swag, swag.

Chris Crack and Soul Trap Tree give everyone the second offering from their #TREESWAG EP visually today, which you can watch above. Crack’s flow and Tree’s production proved to be a winner on last week’s “Cuts” and “That Sick” counts as another W.
#TREESWAG drops May 1st. Consider yourself warned.
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.
