MC Tree & Chris Crack “Chicken Pocks” [Music Video]

Off the recently released collaborative project “Tree + Crack” by MC Tree and Chris Crack comes their latest visual “Chicken Pocks”. More on the release below.

Chicago’s MC Tree has had one hell of a year, releasing a slew of Soul Trap-themed collaborations throughout 2014 alongside his own solo projects, he has established himself as the sort of Godfather of Chicago’s burgeoning hip-hop scene. He returns today with a re-hashing of his work with fellow Chicago MC, Chris Crack. Having teamed up earlier this year with the New Deal Crew artist for a resounding hit in TreeSwag, which has found itself on year-end lists, the duo returns on Christmas Eve with a tightly packaged, five song EP to tie folks over through the holidays. Once again a furtherance of the patented ‘Soul Trap’ sound that Tree established with his Sunday School series.

Combining the production with his endearing, raspy voice, the Cabrini-Green native has created a unifying sound in a city divided. Having performed at Pitchfork Festival, overseas in Europe as well as being a part of the Red Bull Sound Select series, Tree has become a bonafide star in his own right, click below to check out some of his more recent releases.
