The Come Up: Tree


On his rap name:

Tree:  “I got my name from my name—believe it or not. My name is Tremaine. My grandmother started calling me Tree as a baby. It just kept coming around. It stayed with me through grammar school and high school. And eventually, I started to just go by Tree.

It was given to me at birth pretty much when I was still going around in diapers. All my friends just started calling me it. They heard my family calling me that. And, you know, it kind of stuck with me.”
