Last year, the Chicago rapper/producer Tree earned a spot in the Mixtape Of The Week column for Sunday School II: When Church Lets Out, a raw and soulful example of how weird and personal traditional rap can still get. He’ll follow that one up later this month with The @MCTREEG EP, a free Scion-sponsored release. One song, “Like Whoa,” already made it to the internet, and now Tree has shared “Probably Nu It,” on which he sings in a bluesy growl over a minimal beat that recalls snap music — an aesthetic disconnect if ever there was one. It’s a great song, and you can hear it below.
The @MCTREEG EP will be up for free download 1/21.
