Gather around the fireplace, pour a glass of eggnog and turn up this hilarious Christmas mixtape teaser. Chance the Rapper and Jeremih put a spin on Christmas classics in an upcoming holiday mixtape expected to drop next week called Merry Christmas Lil' Mama . The mixtape is expected out next Friday, Dec. 22.
The video starts with Jeremih playing a traditional-sounding Christmas tune on the piano with a gospel organ intertwined as Chance the Rapper walks over to take a seat. Like the old-school Christmas album commercials, the mixtape cover art spins to the front of the screen as a voiceover announces "Well it's that time of year again, and you know what that means. Merry Christmas Lil' Mama." The track quickly goes from gospel Christmas to Chicago house dance music.
"Merry Christmas Lil' Mama. Know you got it from ya mama," Jeremih croons over the dance track before it switches to Chance the Rapper. "Hey Ms. Parker. Can I shovel your snow," Chance sings over a smoother track. The guys worked on this fun project last year and have decided to release it to the public next week. A full track teaser is also available on SoundCloud.
Here's what Chance had to say on Instagram:
"Me and @jeremih quietly made a free chicago christmas soundcloud project last year and it was so fun we just ran it back. #merrychristmaslilmama will be available EVERYWHERE next week wit a gang of new altxmas bangerz. Shout Common & Lena Waithe for playing new drums on every track on this project."
