Authenticity plays a large part in Tree’s growing appeal. Following the release of The @MCTREEG EP, the Chicago native returns with a freebie track titled “More Than You Know.”

The rapper prides himself on his patented soul trap sound. But this release is more soul than trap, as the song actually dates back to 2012 around the time he released Sunday School — a ways before he developed his music into what it is today. Luckily for listeners, that has no bearing on the quality, though.

Producer Thelonious Martin laced the cut with an oldies vocal sample that oozes with pain and anguish. Tree rises to the occasion by kicking vivid rhymes about a relationship full of deceit.
