chance-the-rapper-jeremih-holiday-mixtapeChance the Rapper knows how to keep his fans entertained and on their toes- the rapper has taken a tip from his friend Beyonce and dropped a surprise mixtape with singer Jeremih just in time for the holidays.

Merry Christmas Lil Mama is a holiday collaboration between the two artists that fuses hip-hop, Chicago flavor (which makes sense because it’s both artists’ hometown), and the Christmas spirit in a new mixtape that no one saw coming. The mixtape features 9 new songs from the duo, who previously collaborated on Chance’s album Coloring Book in a song titled “Summer Friends”.

The two unveiled the secret project via social media:
