Damani & Chris Starr – “A Gift That Keeps On Giving”

The gift that keeps on giving… is love! Chill out to this smooth R&B track, featured on Snoop Dogg’s Christmas In Tha Dogghouse album.




Rza & Craig Ferguson – “Deck The Halls”

Back in 2005, TV host Craig Ferguson brought out RZA to perform a hip-hop version of the Christmas carol “Deck The Halls”. RZA does a little beatboxing, while Craig Ferguson plays the stereotypical embarrassing white guy… you’ll see what I mean. Christmas Relevance Naughty or Nice? Santa’s Score RZA on Twitter Craig Ferguson on Twitter The Late




Lehtmojoe – “Christmas In Da Club” (Paul McCartney x 50 Cent)

You thought Lehtmojoe only had one Christmas mash-up track? You must be trippin.




White Lightning, P’Zilla, and Chinchilla – “Ho! Ho! Ho! (It Looks Like Snow)”

Chances are you haven’t heard of White Lightning, P-Zilla, or Chinchilla until now. It’s okay, neither did we. Just know that your mind is about to be blown with one of the best Christmas rap songs in the history of Christmas rap songs.




Ghostface Killah – “Ghostface X-Mas”

Wu-Tang celebrates Christmas too! Released in 2008, this single features Tony Starks himself dropping a few Christmas-related verses over a hip-hop “Carol of the Bells” instrumental. Surprisingly, the song is G-rated for the most part. There is the occasional reference to Hennessey mixed with egg nog (yum) and a particular illegal plant, but this is standard Shaolin fare. You tell




Ludacris – “Ludacrismas”

In the 2007 comedy Fred Claus starring Vince Vaughn and Paul Giamatti, Ludacris plays the part of DJ Donnie, the official DJ of the North Pole. It’s a small role as he only appears in one scene where Fred (Vince Vaughn) is fed up with the redundancy of DJ Donnie’s track selection. Check it out




Ying Yang Twins – “Carol Of Da Bellz” (with Lyrics)

Closing out the Ying Yang Twins’ 2008 Christmas album is “Carol Of Da Bellz”, a crunk/club version of the classic tune. The song has a jam of an instrumental, but the lyrics aren’t very Christmas relevant. The Twins rap about sippin on various alcoholic beverages and hitting the club during Christmas season. In Ying Yang




Ying Yang Twins – “This Christmas” (with Lyrics)

As the second song on the Ying Yang Twins’ Christmas album, “This Christmas” is arguably the most true to the original Christmas classic. It starts off as a standard R&B remake until Kaine chimes in at around the 1:30 mark. I’m not a fan of his verse because his vocals just don’t fit the dynamic




Ying Yang Twins – “Sleigh Ride” (with Lyrics)

I know it’s rare, but the Ying Yang Twins are actually on good behavior for this song. There are a few lines about their desire for spiked egg nog and tightly rolled blunts, but that’s par for the course. Aside from that, “Sleigh Ride” has got to be one of the cleanest and morally right




Ying Yang Twins – “Deck Da Club”

The Ying Yang Twins are so 10 years ago… but Santa doesn’t discriminate! The crunked out rap duo have their fair share of party bangers, and Christmas parties are no exception. “Deck Da Club” is textbook Ying Yang with some added holiday cheer. By the name of the song, you can probably tell it is
