The rap and pop community has always seen a plethora of unannounced collections of music being released. With that in mind, Chance The Rapper and Jeremih have shown some true character by dropping their surprise mixtape Merry Christmas Lil' Mama. Take one listen and you'll surely have a smile on your face.
The compilation begins with the Red Ryder BB Gun quote from A Christmas Story on the track "All The Way" and then jumps right into beat-intensive rap/hip hop with a slight hint of the holiday spirit. Both Chance and Jeremih power through the music and then to our hilarious surprise comedian Hannibal Buress takes over the microphone doing some random Christmas jokes and Travis Scott autotune impressions. "Put them Travis Scott effects on my s***" he ends the track with.
From there we have "Snowed In" to follow with some beautiful sung vocals over minimal instrumentation. For the rest of the mixtape you will find yourself bopping to the tunes, laughing, and overall just being a little bit more joyous as you go about your winter day. Songs like "Stranger At The Table," "I'm Your Santa," and "Chi Town Christmas" will make you impressed by the cleverness that came from the two musical minds uniting.
Kudos to Chance and Jeremih for brightening up the holiday season for fans everywhere.
Let us know which songs you'll be jamming to on Christmas!
