Michael Christmas - "Big Ass Smile"

If I had discovered Michael Christmas' What a Weird Day any earlier than the last week of 2015, it would definitely have landed in my top 10 of the year. For someone that used to listen to hip hop almost exclusively, I barely listen to anything new nowadays. Most new rap is either too fratty for me, or I just have no idea what the appeal is. What is also strange is that even though I've always been a huge supporter of the local Boston music scene, I've never really been able to get into much Boston hip hop.

This might be why I love Michael Christmas. It's everything I miss about rap. It's fun and creative. Unlike 99% of the rap of today, he doesn't just sample a hit song and then autotune a chorus, which is vital for me. Right around Christmas (naturally) he released "Big Ass Smile" for a free download, and you're going to want to check it out. It's a great combination of Outkast and De La Soul. 

You can listen to (and download) "Big Ass Smile" for free below. You'll want to hear more of Michael Christmas, so be sure to check him out on Soundcloud and Facebook afterwards.
