The California-based Artist by the name of Treez has been steadily building accolades over the past few years, bringing the Hip-Hop community hope, that there are still real MC's out there. His stage name Treez he developed himself amongst some of his friends meaning growth, being that he was influenced at the roots of Hip-Hop. Born Alex Lindsey, raised in Salinas,CA, Treez was introduced to many genres of music at an early age by his mother and older brothers, listening to everything from Oldies, to Hip Hop, R&B, Gangsta' Rap and anything that sounded good. But it was his older cousins whom had influenced him to pursue the craft of actually writing a 16 bar verse. Naturally, Treez developed solid rhymes and it wasnt long before his cousins included him on their tapes. From then on, he began his quest hoping that one day he'd be "signed" to a major record label. It wasnt until his Freshman year in high school did he start taking rap seriously, balancing music, his studies and sports. Submerged in a city full of high crime, Treez was destined to find a way out. After Highschool, he relocated to Central California where he attended college at Fresno State University. There he joined a Hip Hop group called N.Y.C.A. The group disbanded in 2009, and Treez took on his solo career. Recently, Treez has been workin on his first solo project entiled "For the Record" due to drop 3rd quarter of 2013.
