HipHopDX Premiere: Bay Area rapper Tree Thomas is back with a new visual for “Closer.” Directed by Tree Thomas and Taran Paper, Tree hits a dimly lit pool hall and opens up about his desire to be “closer” to a certain someone. Tree sings and raps over a hypnotizing beat produced by BankRollGotIt as he raps about losing a girl over that sticky green stuff.

“This is definitely one of my favorite songs I’ve made as of late,” Thomas tells HipHopDX. “I still remember hearing the beat for the first time and falling in love. The idea came about when I was talking with some of the homies about a girl I use to kick it with a while back. They were like, ‘What happen?? She was perfect’ and I told them she didn’t smoke [laughs].”
