Tree's "Treestyle" series continues today with a new one named after one of hip hop's most influential forces: "Afrika Bambaataa." This follows up his last one, "Platinum Chains," which arrived in the middle of May.
"Afrika Bambaataa" was produced by The Dutchmaster, who supplies MC Tree G with a spine-tingling, trappy instrumental to raggedly sing over. It's less than a minute and a half in length, but Tree makes it well worth our time with some heartfelt lyrics and indelible melodies. "I usually start with truth," he croons, "She made dinner for a nigga and we start with soup," and that should give you a good idea of the lyrical space he's in on this one.
Shot off in the air, left them niggas scared
All we do is hustle, that's how we was bred
Nigga stopped sellin', now he in the feds
Put that on my momma, three, four hundred dollars
