posted by Alex February 25, 2015

With the successful release of TrapGenius on Noisey, Tree gives us the visuals to “Don’t Een Kare” shortly after. TrapGenius is Tree’s first solo release in a while, and we are glad that he took his time perfecting this project because it really shows that Tree is definitely in his own lane doing things differently than your favorite local artist. Check out the video above and make sure to listen to Trapgenius.

Saba - Comfort Zone

Saba has long been a favorite of us here at Pursuit Of Dopeness so it’s easy to see why we’d be excited to post his latest project, the album, Comfort Zone. The Pivot Gang rep has long been one of the best and most promising young talents coming out of Chicago these last few years and his new album is set to broaden his reach to even greater lengths.

Comfort Zone includes features from other rising Chicago talents like Eryn Allen Kane, MC Tree and LEGIT with production work from Ken Ross (NAiMA) and Justin Jackson, among others; Saba himself producing or co-producing the great majority of the album.

Download, see the track list, and make Saba your new favorite rapper after the jump. Continue Reading
