You better watch out, you better not cry! It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas now that Jeremih and Chance the Rapper have slipped a surprise mixtape under our trees, titled Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama. The nine festive tracks, which the pair has dubbed to be “For Chicago,” feature comedian Hannibal Buress on “All The Way,” while NoName stars on “The Tragedy.” The tape pulses with ambition and a pleasant restlessness that brings you to believe the artists had more ideas than they had time.
All the same, the quality of the music is surpassed satisfying. In case you forgot, this isn’t the duo’s first time in the studio together. Last year, Chance jumped on the remix for Jeremih’s “Pass Dat,” and earlier this year, Jeremih was featured on “Summer Friends” from Chance’s Coloring Book LP. Could Chance x Jeremih just be the next musical power duo in the making?
