Chicago got a whole lot of Christmas cheer and black boy joy when Chance the Rapper and Jeremih took to Power 92 to premier the rerelease of their Christmas themed mixtape Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama.
In addition to the original nine tracks featured on Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama, rerelease Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama *Re-Wrapped features 10 brand new Christmas tunes like only Chance the Rapper and Jeremih could create. New twists on classic Christmas songs and some creative new songs make Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama *Re-Wrapped even more fun than the original.
While the mixtape has something for everyone, one song in particular is making waves. The two paired up with rising star Valee for “Are You Live” and fans are loving all three minutes and 41 seconds of it. In typical Chance the Rapper fashion political issues specifically the climate of Chicago’s Public School system find a place on this record, mixed in with all the fun family time and holiday spirit. The on-air premier must be credited to personality and DJ HotRod, who made the history making event possible. The live premier shined a light on Chance the Rapper and Jeremih creating the buzz Merry Christmas Lil Mama Re-Wrapped deserves.
It goes without saying that the pair of Chicagoans have’ done it again. Not only Merry Christmas Lil Mama *Re-Wrapped is a Christmas mixtape worth listening too, it is the perfect soundtrack for an upbeat, soulful and fun loving Christmas.
