Fresh off rocking the stage at last week’s Red Bull Sound Select show in Chicago, MC Tree caught the first thing smokin’ (literally!) and headed south for Jamaica — where he’s currently spending 4/20. Now that’s dedication!
So to kickoff his trip, he cut loose another Treestyle, this time called “I’m A Star” — and with the track he sends a message. And it’s so sincere.
spending 420 in jamaica. leaving this just in case i visit tivoli gardens and dont make it

A major thank you to everyone who attended our show with Red Bull Sound Select this past Thursday night in Chicago. We sold out Reggies yet again with our eighth installment of the series, which brought the man right chea, better known as Mystikal, to the Windy City to shut it down alongside some of our best homegrown talent including Martin $ky, Tree and Chris Crack.
It was an eventful night and we brought out some of the city’s dopest fans for a fun evening. Crucial Conflict showed up as did Saba. Martin $ky performed atop the bar, and Tree Crack had a bubble machine. If you missed it, shame on you, but we have you covered with some recap videos above and below.
Check them out and check back for more details on our June show.
Produced by Playa Haze
This one right here? This might be the realest ish Tree has ever written. If you can’t feel this, I’m not sure you really listen to rap music. Tree gets incredibly personal on his latest TREESTYLE from his stellar reoccurring series. Over this heavenly instrumental from Playa Haze, Tree talks street life, family life, career life and straight up real life. My God.
I’ve run this one back about 10 times. The gospel. If you’re a fan of Tree be sure to come out to Reggies tonight for our latest show with Red Bull Sound Select. Also on the bill are Mystikal, Chris Crack and Martin $ky. It’s $3 with RSVP, $10 without. Doors open at 8pm. RSVP here!

If you follow FSD then you know Tree is one of our favorite rappin’ ass rappers and producin’ ass producers. He’s got the juice — matter of fact, he’s always had it. He’s known to drop projects on a whim at any and all times. So when following his career, you have to stay woke. It’s a rule.
And today is no different, except this isn’t a typical Tree project. He’s not rapping, but instead gifting the world some of his best instrumentals — heard and unheard. What a treat! Tree partnered with Ben Niespodziany and Mishka for this collection of favorites and rarities titled Treestrumentals. There’s 20 beats total. Some classic, some new to the ears, but all worth checking out. Dive into it below.
If you’re in Chicago on Thursday night (April 16th), be sure to drop by Reggies for our show with Red Bull Sound Select. The bill includes Mystikal, Tree, Chris Crack and Martin $ky. RSVP for $3 entry right here.
The man right chea!
In February, we shut it down with Killa Cam, and we’re back for April with the round out the tank, MYSTIKAL. Yes, we’re bringing the Prince of the South to Chicago for our next endeavor with Red Bull Sound Select. He’ll be running through his hits from Big Boy to No Limit to Cash Money — up to his new hit with Mark Ronson, “Feel Right.”
For this month, we’re back at our homebase of Reggies NEXT Thursday, April 16th for another 18+, $3 affair. And alongside Mystikal, we’re introducing Martin $ky into the Red Bull Sound Select system. As you know, his recently released Everywhere But Here EP shook up the city when it dropped last month, so we’re happy to welcome him to the main stage.
As we told you in February, this year we’ll be slotting our shows a little different, and instead of bringing in three new acts every show, there will just be one, and then one from our already burgeoning RBSS roster. So we felt it was only right to bring you the world’s first-ever Tree Crack [Tree + Chris Crack] show. Yes, you’ve seen Chris Crack and Tree perform together during each other’s solo sets, but have you ever seen them as a duo? Nope. Well, you’re going to on April 16th. The first-ever Tree Crack show — don’t miss it.
Do remember, you must RSVP for the $3 price point. Do that now, and be sure to arrive at the venue early. First come, first serve, and we don’t want any diehards missing out on the 12th Ward Prince. RSVP NOW.
We’ve also put together a 6-hour playlist of Mystikal gems for you to prepare with. You can now check that out via Spotify below. Stream it! Enjoy.
