Chance the Rapper brings good tidings with the free ‘Merry Christmas Lil Mama’


It’s a Christmas miracle, for rap fans anyway. 

Just in time for your holiday drives, Chance the Rapper on Thursday released a surprise collaborative Christmas mixtape with R&B stud Jeremih. Released in the wee hours of the morning, the nine-track tape features guest spots from Noname and Lud Foe, along with Hannibal Buress on “All the Way.”

Buress tweeted an “apology” to fans for delaying the project with his rapping skills.

Chance the Rapper released Coloring Book earlier this year, which became the first rap “mixtape” to be nominated for a Grammy. (You needed an Apple Music subscription to hear the thing initially, but still.)

You can stream the album below or download it for free at DatPiff
