“TreStyle, an emcee out of Chicago whom I’m going to call the Bruce Banner/Incredible Hulk of HipHop. In an everyday encounter with him, you’ll recognize that he’s a mild-mannered, easy-going, joke-cracking dude who represents the struggle of the mid-western, blue-collar hustle that we’re all too familiar with. On the flip, when a mic is placed in front of his face, the beast is unleashed and his ferocious attack is brutal, a no-holds barred assault expressed through his extremely passionate lyrics and delivery.”
- Damon L. Thomas
I said this a few months ago and after watching this video, you may understand why.
F.A. is the Squad!

Just wrapped up some amazing visuals for the treacherous TreStyle, an emcee out of Chicago whom I’m going to call the Bruce Banner/Incredible Hulk of HipHop. In an everyday encounter with him, you’ll recognize that he’s a mild-mannered, easy-going, joke-cracking dude who represents the struggle of the mid-western, blue-collar hustle that we’re all too familiar with. On the flip, when a mic is placed in front of his face, the beast is unleashed and his ferocious attack is brutal, a no-holds barred assault expressed through his extremely passionate lyrics and delivery.

Here are a few video stills from F.A. The Squad‘s upcoming music video “Just For Now”. The video was actually shot in Chicago with 2nd Unit pick up shots done in Atlanta. The vibe of the song is fun and energetic and our disjointed, frenzied visuals manage to create the perfect marriage to the high-energy track. Video coming VERY soon, but from the look of these images, you can tell we had a ball while shooting.
Special Thanks to the lovely Jennifer Garcia our featured model for the video. I got a feeling the modeling world will be seeing a lot more from her in the near future. Stay tuned for the official video for “Just For Now”.

Today is THE day. F.A. The Squad is releasing their project The Pilot. As one of hip hop’s most promising groups to emerge in some time, this mixtape is sure to awaken those not in the know about Young Rel, TreStyle, and The Boy Illinois. The Windy City trio has enlisted amazing production from The Baron Boys, Victor Radz, The Kid 808, and J Runit along with appearances from Dave Coresh, Blink, and True Indeed.
I’ve had the pleasure of crafting some visuals to a few of the songs off The Pilot as well as documenting some of their journey in creating this special project. So sit back, get a glass of your poison of choice, roll up…or do whatever you do and witness a piece of Hip Hop history in the making.
