Dion Jetson made his FSD debut a while ago alongside SeVen1 on “Magia Parra”, but now he’s back with a track of his own. “He So Cold” is the first offering from Dion’s forthcoming project, The Ear & The Heart, and features some assistance from Tree G. Jetson’s motivation for cooking this one up is quite simple:
I see a lot going on with my city, I just wanted to provide my interpretation of the situation.
An accompanying visual for this record is on the way, so be sure to keep an eye out for that. Stream/download below.
Sway’s Chicago Week continues, with today’s edition featuring Tree G, The Boy Illi and Vo. Earlier this week we’ve seen Twista, King Louie, Lil Durk and a whole gaggle of others, and today Tree, Illi and Vo offer up some rather insightful gems. Press play and pay attention.
Tree had the 1pm opening slot on Sunday, which was the final day of the Pitchfork Music Fest, this past weekend. At first I was pissed that Tree had such an early placement. And after two full days of the Fest, getting up to Union Park by 1pm required a lot of effort. But most importantly, the greatness of Tree needed to be experienced by as many people as possible. Tree is for the people. All of them. He needed a spot later in the day.
But then after some thought, it all made perfect sense. Tree rose to fame thanks to his heralded Sunday School projects, so Tree had to perform early on Sunday — it was his version of Sunday School. It was his congregation. Talk about synergy! Was that even planned? I doubt it, but Tree and his band (you’ll recognize some faces) rocked out and definitely awoke the holy ghost. His set was amazing, and if you somehow missed it you can now watch a recap. Check him rocking “The King” above and ”Devotion (Get It)” below…
Go stand in a corner if you missed Sunday School, though. For real.

Mark Ward and his Drank and Dank website have some of the most unique tastes of all the blogs on the internets, so when they drop their Dripped Up compilations, it’s always something of a spectacle. The fifth installment will impact in a few hours, but we were able to get our hands on the Tree record before lift off. Here Tree grows alongside King Jugg.
RoGizz a.k.a. the Black Blagojevich links with New Jersey crooner Jabril for a new EP they’re calling Broken Homes. The project is five songs deep and was entirely produced by SC. Yes, you read that correctly, THEE SC. Ro’s right hand man, Tree, shows up to feature and although it’s short it packs a lot of punch.*
*On one of these joints (I don’t know which one because of the missing tracklist), SC flips Teddy’s vocoder from Blackstreet’s “Don’t Leave Me” and it’s awesome.

This remix obviously hit your radar back in March when it first impacted, now we finally get the official video. Blanco, Mikkey, Tree G and Mano? That’s a move you just can’t front. It’s not budging.
Blanco Caine’s White America, hosted by Bigga Rankin, Vic Lloyd and Superstar J is due out later this summer.

The Frank Dukes-produced “Busters” is definitely one of the many standout records from Tree’s Sunday School II and today he liberates the track’s official video. Click play and watch as MC Tree makes his way around the city and shoots down chatter from those who don’t matter.

Ever wondered what it would be like if your shoes could talk? What if your favorite shoes were voiced by your favorite rappers? Well that thought, if you had it, only existed in an alternate universe — until now. With direction from Noah Banks, sounds by Nick Castle and puppetry by Lefty North; GLC and Tree bring your favorite kicks to life. Sound weird? Maybe. But you should definitely check it out.
The soul of every great man is defined by the shoes he chooses. Whether on the ball court like Michael Jordan leaving hapless defenders in his wake, the stage set ablaze by the Godfather of Soul, the pelvic rock of Elvis, or the innovative skate style of Steve Caballero, their essence of success comes from their footwear funkiness. Time to take a walk down memory lane with some of the greatest to ever do it.
