While Roc Marciano was in Chicago for a Closed Session and performance at Digital Freshness, he hit the studio with Tree, the rising emcee/producer who gained much notoriety with last years Sunday School mixtape. Roc and Tree definitely hit it off in the studio and after one thing led to another, Tree began spontaneously asking Roc Marciano a series of questions relating to Roc’s realization of skills, wordplay, and imagery within his craft. Definitely a dope clip. Lookout for Sunday School 2 coming soon via Closed Sessions, as well as the proper Roc Marciano CS as well.
