Chicago might be one of the most versatile cities on earth , in terms of rap music. From conscious rap to pimp shit to a rich battle rapper history to drill music , it’s pretty much has all the bases covered.
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know I’m a big fan of Tree. He’s a rapper/producer who’s been dropping quality music for a few years now. He is the creator of “Soul trap” which is pretty much soul samples infused with trap style drums. I’m a big fan cause he does it with simplicity and good taste. No crazy synthed out breakdowns, not masturbatory drum fills. Just solid samples with head nod beats under them.
His most recent project is a collaborative effort with fellow Chicago mc Vic Spencer. Spencer who , as a rapper, actually reminds me of Tree a little. They both have a growl to them. HE’s kinda like a mix between Tree and Khudjo from the Goodie Mobb. Whatever he is, I’m into it. Tree handles all the beats and Vic handles the rhymes. It’s a solid EP, in my opinion, but I’m curious what you guys think of it. Check it out… (I’d skip the first song, cause it’s an intro and not a good “First impression” of what’s really going on with the rest of the album)
So, what do you think?
