Michael Christmas is back with another single, "Shadows," off his upcoming album, What a Weird Day.
His last drop, "Are You Around," featuring Polyester the Saint, was a late-night funk jam that was even more far-out than Christmas usually takes us. "Shadows" features Christmas' usual laid-back, effortless rapping. What starts off as a seemingly self-deprecating account of Christmas' "ordinary" personality turns into an introspective journey and a showcase of how Christmas is using his creative gifts in more interesting ways than most rappers out there, even if there's hardly any boasting, or flexing, throughout the song.
A hunnid emoji, prayer hands, fire, it's lit
I thank God for this gift
And if I ever win a Grammy I do something worthy of a GIF
Kiss my momma, then I'm back to this Motel 6
