Out of the Treated Crew vaults comes "Waterfall", a track originally recorded back in 2012. The Na$im Williams and Fortified Sounds produced track gets an assist from Sulaiman with a great verse over a smooth instrumental. Enjoy!
Chicago emcee Doc and Treated Crew producer Na$im Williams link up for the phenomenally produced track, "Gone". The instrumental comes off Na$im's currently released The Symbiote EP. Both Doc and Williams have been combining forces and making their collaborations one of the most solid tandems in Chicago Hip-Hop, which will be continuing to happen as these two artists are set to release more music together in the near future.
Treated Crew producer Na$im Williams connects with C. Rich for "Bad/Heart". The track samples R&B legend, Maxwell and this has been the latest Na$im beat to get attention since the release of his EP, The Symbiote. Enjoy!
Last time Doc and Na$im Williams linked up was in summer anthem "61 Lilies". Chicago emcee Doc and Treated Crew producer Na$im Williams bless us with "Grateful", a record that acknowledges the violence in Chicago and adds a spin to this issue through humility and being able to live yet another day to bless this city with great, empowering music to bump to. Enjoy!
Treated Crew soldier, Na$im Williams gives you pure Venom in his latest instrumental project, The Symbiote EP. Williams drew inspiration for this project from the current state of violence going on in the city of Chicago. He uses "The Symbiote" a symbol that juxtaposes good and evil through Stan Lee's character Venom in the Spider-Man series as the theme behind this project. Williams also draws inspiration from Lil Boosie, Kanye West, Daft Punk, Sade, and other childhood/current interests in the process of creating this project during the summer. If this is any indication of Chicago Hip-Hop it is that Na$im through this project cements himself among the elite producers that continue to carry Chicago's current youth driven Hip-Hop movement.
Treated Crew's Na$im Williams releases "Bound 2.5" in anticipation of his upcoming release, The Symbiote. "Bound 2.5" is Na$im's remix to Kanye West's "Bound 2" off the recent Yeezus album.

The Symbiote is slated to release in late September/Early October, until then you are able to attend Na$im's listening party for The Symbiote in September. "Bound 2.5" is just a taste of what Na$im Williams, Treated Crew's youngest in charge brings to the table.
The NWO is considered to be one of the greatest factions in wrestling history. It was a Heel stable that became a phenomenon that catapulted WCW over the former WWF in the Monday Night Wars battle for ratings supremacy. This Heel stable was a collective group of the best wrestlers in the professional wrestling industry that constantly recruited to continue its dominance and strength in collecting the best the professional wrestling business had to offer. It was a movement that continues today through fans, video, and history.
Today, Na$im Williams drops his latest project Na$im World Order: Black & White. A compilation project featuring the best the city of Chicago has to offer. Like the NWO, Na$im has created his stable consisting of his Treated Crew brethren, Probcause, Henny B, Chandler London, Doc, , Ego, Vic Spencer, Nico Segal, Scheme, and various other rappers and producers. The mixtape is a good listen from top to bottom which is a great reason to continue to support Chicago Hip-Hop. The Monday Night Wars might be dead but Hip-Hop in Chicago like professional wrestling in the 90's is in full effect.
Na$im Williams is the rap game Hulk Hogan. Best believe he just "Leg Dropped" the competition with this great project! For more info on Na$im Williams visit our Hip-Hop Taste of Chicago series.
