Boston’s very own bombastic rapper, Michael Christmas, teams up with producer Prefuse 73 to create the super duo Fudge.
Michael Christmas drops witty lines and proclaims himself the best rapper on, “Both Globes” and on the group’s first single, “In My Shoes” featuring Alex Mali.
The tireless Christmas has certainly been keeping himself busy this year. It seems like only yesterday that he dropped his dreamy EP “Baggy Eyes”. The Roxbury native performed to a packed crowd at the Boston Calling Music Festival in May and is currently performing across the United States as part of the Bring Yo Friends Tour with Tunji Ige and special guests including Khalid and Asher Roth. Christmas has been working alongside some of his friends, including Mac Miller, this summer as well.
“In My Shoes” is an exciting single that hopefully is a sign of things to come. The spot on connection between Christmas’s flow and Prefuse’s electronic and soul influenced beat makes for a killer track. There are also tons of effects which keeps the track interesting and fresh despite Christmas spitting like he popped off in a past decade.
I’m sure Michael Christmas will continue to keep things interesting this year. Look out for Fudge’s first project, which is due out on LEX records later this year, and listen to the track below.
