With all the various facets of Chicago’s vast rap scene, breaking through the cracks is a tough task. Yet, Chris Crack isn’t alone in his uphill climb. Crack has actually been given the opportunity to star in the first installment of artist/producer Tree’s SoulTrap series, appropriately titled the TreeSwag EP.
The first single is a quick, two-minute spread called “The Sick,” which features the gritty and lyrically sound Crack straight flowing atop Tree’s glossy sample reversals. Although the song structure leaves a bit to be desired, the refined throwback vibe and personable visual definitely do their part to bring a more soulful approach to the city known as Chiraq.
