Early this or morning or late last night - depending on your sleep schedule - Chance the Rapper & Jeremih released a collaborative Christmas mixtape. The mixtape was posted to Chance's Soundcloud with a simple message, "For Chicago."
Entitled Merry Christmas Lil' Mama, the tape features nine holiday-inspired tracks. Joining the two Chicago-born rappers are a few of The Windy City's finest, including Noname, Hannibal Buress, and Lud Foe.
Few have gotten into this year's Christmas spirit as much as Chance. Earlier this month, he sang "Jingle Bells" with President Obama at the whitehouse and participated in the Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Over the weekend, Chance made an appearance on Saturday Night Live in a sketch inspired by Run-D.M.C.'s "Christmas in Hollis. He also shared a Christmas playlist on BBC Radio 1, which featured a couple other Chicago-area favorites, Kanye West and Jackson 5.
Merry Christmas Lil' Mama, is the perfect bow for Chance after an outstanding 2016, which saw him receive much-deserved recognition for his third mixtape, Coloring Book. The album received a nomination for Best Rap Album at the 2017 Grammy Awards. It is also being listed as one of the top records of the year on a variety of outlets lists.
