10 Hip-Hop Christmas Carols
With new rappers like Fetty Wap out here recording Christmas carols for all the Trap Queens, we thought this Christmas Eve was as good a time as any to take a look back at a few of the rappers who paved the way.
Hit the flip for some “classic” Christmas jams from the 90’s and the 00’s.
TLC – “Sleigh Ride”
How can you NOT have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year after hearing this?
K. Knock, Quad City DJ’s, And The 69 Boyz – “What You Want For Christmas”
The Christmas jam that launched the wishlists of an entire generation of Instagram models…
Outkast – “Player’s Ball”
A lot of our younger readers might not even realize that Outkast’s breakout hit was actually a Christmas song recorded for LaFace’s Family Christmas album…
Snoop Dogg and Tha Dogg Pound – “Santa Clause Goes Straight To The Ghetto”
Kanye West feat. Cam’ron, Pusha T, Big Sean, Jim Jones, Vado, Cyhi Da Prince, Teyana Taylor, Musiq Soulchild, – “Chistmas In Harlem”
Puff Daddy ft. Run DMC, Mase, Snoop Dogg, Salt & Pepa, Onyx and Keith Murray – “Santa Baby Remix”
Peep Rev Run’s Wife Justine singing the chorus…
Ludacris – “Ludacrismas”
Remember the movie “Fred Claus?” No? Neither do we. But we do recall this jam from the soundtrack…
Easy E – “Merry Muthaf*ckin Xmas”
Maybe scoot the kids out of the room before you blast this one…
Ying Yang Twins – “Deck Da Club”
For all of Santa’s little helpers that want to get their twerk on this Holiday…
DMX – “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer”
Okay…technically not a song, since it wasn’t formally released. But the clip is a classic and we are baffled that no one ever threw a beat on this and let it flourish.
