“Christmas in Boston” feat. 1982 (Statik Selektah & Termanology), Kali, Reks, JFK & Teyana Taylor

Back in 2010, Kanye’s G.O.O.D. music label released a surprisingly relevant Christmas song in 2010 called “Christmas in Harlem”.  It’s easily one of my favorite xmas songs with it’s holiday-but-not-gimmicky vibe, featuring Teyana Taylor on the chorus and a whole list of rappers. Apparently that list of rappers wasn’t long enough: a bunch of Boston emcees put together




“You Hear Them Bells Go” (Parody of Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, and Plies)

The creator of Shawt Bus Shawty has a gift up his sleeve for us this holiday season! It’s another hip-hop parody video, this time featuring cartoon imposters of Rick Ross (as Santa Claus), Lil’ Wayne (as Rudolph),  Young Jeezy (as the Snowman), and Plies (as the Elf).




Odd Future – “F*** This Christmas”

If you are in a pissed off mood for whatever reason and have no desire to cheer up, this song is for you. Hell, Odd Future in general is probably a good look if that’s how you’re feeling.




LehtMoJoe – “Christmas Swag” (Paul McCartney vs. Soulja Boy)

Ready for some next level sh**?!? Dallas-based DJ LehtMoJoe crafted a perfect mash-up of Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmas Time” and Soulja Boy’s “Pretty Boy Swag”. Who knew that these two legends were meant from each other in the mash-up hall of fame?




2-Cent Christmas 2010 – “Good Christmas” Parody Video (Impersonations of Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Drake, Nicki Minaj, and MANY more)

The sociology-meets-comedy group 2-Cent has a long running annual tradition of hip-hop Christmas parodies featuring all your favorite rappers. This is the 2010 edition and it’s my absolute favorite. This time around, we get hilarious impersonations of Birdman, Chris Brown, Drake, Eminem, Gucci Mane, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Lil’ Wayne, Plies, Questlove, Rick Ross, Rihanna,




Algee – “This Christmas”

If there were any Christmas rap song that would be suitable for radio play, Algee’s version of “This Christmas” would be it. The energy level is high throughout the song, and the instrumental stays true to the original “This Christmas” with some added flare. The lyrics are light-hearted as Algee takes us through some of




Kanye West – “Christmas in Harlem” (ft. CyHi da Prynce, Teyana Taylor, Cam’Ron, Jim Jones, Vado, Pusha T, Musiq Soulchild)

The G.O.O.D. music team put out this radio-friendly joint in 2010, and it’s one of my favorite X-mas tunes. Unlike many Christmas rap songs, this one’s not gimmicky at all. It has a really raw feel thanks to the smooth vocals from Teyana Taylor and top-notch production from Hit-Boy.
