And I know u ain't shy like Lil' Chris or Vic & TREE

TREE & Vic Spencer - Weed And Clothes
(From the internet; 2015)



I ain't down with TREE bustin' Migos flows over ersatz-Trap beats, but some of his best tracks over the past couple of years have seen him diversify his Soul-Trap palette. That said, I still never would have expected the follow-up to Profound with Vic Spencer to sound like the sort of Pharrell production there should have been more of on his recent LP with Snoop (think: R U A Freak), but it does and it works. Low-key, TREE been had some some of the best hooks in rap since Nino.

Lil' Chris - Life So Crazy
(From the internet; 2015)


Lil' Chris isn't feelin' like Bad Boy's street team - he can work the Kain: "I'm just gettin' money so I don't let that hatin' shit faze me, I'm sellin' white like mashed potatoes so I'm gravy" On the real, though, Life So Crazy is practically Keep Your Head Up in Sick And Tired's clothing: "Man, life so crazy, life so crazy, life so crazy - she 15 years old, that's a baby havin' that baby/man, life so crazy, life so crazy, life so crazy - you was 'post to be the baby daddy but you runnin' round talkin' about that ain't your baby/man, life so crazy, life so crazy, life so crazy - these n*ggas out here shootin' old ladies and babies/man, life so crazy, life so crazy, life so crazy - these police treat us young black men like we got rabies.."

Chicago stuff seems to be getting slept on this year.

I've never heard Kain rap before. Need to sit down after that.
