Michael Christmas Releases ‘Baggy Eyes’ EP
Michael Christmas is wide awake on his new EP Baggy Eyes. The eight-track project is chock-full of lyricism over elegant instrumentals from the likes of LORDFUBU, Cardo and Durkin. Christmas' latest body of work contains guest features from Vintage Lee, $ilkmoney and Polyester the Saint.
The EP opens with the LORDFUBU-produced track "Cell Phone," which boasts some hilarious bars, including, "On my Dwight Schrute, ay/If I show my dick, ay/Get a million views, ay."
The mixtape then shimmies into track two, "Drums Might Make Ya Mama Up." On the standout song, the 21-year-old Boston rapper spits, "Drums might wake Obama up/Drums might frighten Donald Trump/Bass makes shorty's ass shake/Wish a n--a wasn't awkward, huh?/Hood n--as keep the llama tucked/I'm in the club with the Nerf strap/If you hatin' you get no dap."
