This is me and my new Lame Drivers flexidisc. It's a book that plays you music when you put it on a turntable. It has awesome artwork. I've been admiring it all afternoon. Listen to these new songs!

Sunday School II: When Church Lets Out. I'm impressed upon first listen. Doesn't seem to have the same exuberant raw sound of the first mixtape, but the polished sound is well executed. Tree gives Elvis the warbled Chipmunk treatment on "Elvis" and he's got some hyped up features as he raps with Danny Brown and Roc Marciano. As a side note, I like how Tree is somewhat of an elder to the new school of Chicago rappers-- and he's just in his late 20s. Nonetheless, Tree has taken trap music and infused it with the soulful sound that put Chicago on the map more than a decade ago. He doesn't need to keep shouting out "soul trap" on these tracks though. The beats speak for themselves.
