Now that Kanye's remix of Chief Keef's "I Don't Like" has hit the Web, it seems like everyone is getting on the Chicago trap-rap bandwagon. And all the attention the big names have drawn means that less well-known local rappers are getting some limelight too. Chief among them is an MC by the name of Tree, who recently released a stellar mix tape called Sunday School.

Last week Tree released the video for one of the tape's highlights, "All," which is today's 12 O'Clock Track.

With its distorted-and-chopped horn sample, sharp drum snaps, and Tree's raspy croon, "All" is an excellent example of the style Tree has dubbed "soul trap." There's a nice bit of buzz surrounding Sunday School—Cocaine Blunts founder and freelance journalist Andrew Nosnitsky called it the third-best mix tape of the year so far in a piece for MTV Hive—and I'm hoping more folks will catch on.
