Oakland, CA – Oakland native Tree Thomas is back with his latest EP, KINGROVE. The six-track project is crafted by Max Perry and Taylor Gang’s Cozmo — collectively known as the Grammy Award-winning producers The Elevaterz — who have produced music for everyone from Snoop Dogg to Too Short.
To mark the occasion, Tree has shared a video for “Never Rains” featuring fellow Bay Area artist Mistah F.A.B.
“Working with F.A.B. was like a dream,” Tree tells HipHopDX. “I remember riding around in high school listening to his music with my friends, and having some of the greatest moments at parties and events to his songs coming up.
“So, getting a chance to work with him was amazing. He’s one of the few people I look up to and idolize because of his accomplishment, and things he’s done and continuing to do for our city. He’s like a big brother to me now and supports everything I do.”
In addition to F.A.B., KINGROVE also boasts an appearance from burgeoning rapper Rexx Life Raj, among others. With the support of The Elevaterz, Tree’s emotional vulnerability and vocal range is able to reach new heights throughout the album.
