It has been four years since the closing and destruction of the Cabrini Green Housing projects on the Northside of Chicago. It has been three years since Complex named Tree one of the ten Chicago rappers to watch out for. Two years since his legendary sunshine filled performance at Pitchfork. One year from the Soul Trap classic Treeswag. Now we are only a day away from the release of a highly sought after project entitled “Trap Genius”.
Today Prime Fortune takes a close look at Milk Chin. For those fellow soul enthusiasts who are hungry for the full length project, this sonic and visual work serves as an appetizer of sorts. What attracts me to the replay button on this track is Tree’s introspection. The artist paints a picture of his personal identity through bars. Don’t sleep on his bars. Tree’s signature voice and cadence is stressed by his flow. Patiently, attacking, resting and cutting through the beat, Tree weaves the tale of “Milk Chin”.
Many have what it takes to be “Hot”. Few possess the ability to be legends. Tune into the story Directed by Bryan Allen Lamb. Press play.
