Tree & Parallel Thought

Tree & Parallel Thought

Last week local veteran emcee Tree released a new project called The Wild End with the New Jersey production duo Parallel Thought (aka Jeff Blacker & Adam Calman).

This project comes on the heels of his most recent album, We Grown Now, which just dropped back in April.

Tree has come to be known for a sound he calls Soultrap and that sound is alive and well on this album. Tree’s music is always personal, but this album seems to take that intimacy to a whole new level. The album takes its title, The Wild End, from the place Tree spent his childhood, Cabrini-Green. The cover photo was taken of Tree in 1988 at the housing project by Marc PoKempner.
