Mash-up! “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” x “Carol of the Bells”

It’s hard to get a Christmas mash-up wrong. Take 2 classic jams, mash them together, use a drum machine to match a hip-hop beat, and boom: instant hip-hop Christmas jam. Okay, maybe we’re over-simplifying it, but the concept is solid.




“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.




Twiztid – “Waiting On Christmas Gifts” (based on Snoop Dogg’s “Gin & Juice”)

Snoop Dogg’s “Gin & Juice” is a classic hip-hop track that will never get old. You already knew that though. Twiztid use this to their advantage, using the instrumental as the backdrop for this song about waiting for Santa on Christmas Eve.




Black Spade – “Dis Christmas (W/O U)”

Here at Hip Hop Santa, there is a lot of familiarity with the classic Christmas songs. “Jingle Bells”, “Last Christmas”, and “Wonderful Christmas Time” are sampled like nobody’s business. It’s very refreshing when an artist creates an original song that captures the Christmas spirit without resorting to jingle bells as the primary instrument.




Mac Lethal – “Santa Raps SO Fast!!!”

Mac Lethal is back at it again with yet another installation of his “fast rap” series. This time, he claims a NEW WORLD RECORD!!! See for yourself if he can back up his claim, or if he should dejectedly go climbing back up the chimney.




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 2013 – Parody Video (Impersonations of Jay-Z, Meek Mill, Juicy J, and MANY more)

The moment we have all been waiting for… #2CentXmas 2013!! The fifth annual 2-Cent Christmas video is out now and does not disappoint! Switching it up this year, the group performs live on stage for the majority of the songs, rather than making it purely a music video as they have done in the past. Christmas




2-Cent Christmas 2012 – “2 Christmaz” Parody Video (Impersonations of 2 Chainz, Notorious BIG, Kendrick Lamar, and MANY more)

Christmas parodies are a yearly tradition from the team at 2-Cent, and their 2012 video was another hit. Rather than making an outright music video this time, they added some skits, making it more of a story. To me, this year’s video was not as comical as previous ones, but no less entertaining. The 2-Cent




Dubb – “Ghetto Christmas”

Christmas cheer clearly hasn’t spread to South Central Los Angeles, as Dubb has recently unleashed the most violent Christmas song the world has ever seen. His first words are “F*** Santa Clause” and it only gets worse from there. The only thing I have to say to Dubb is… don’t attend SantaCon! Christmas Relevance Naughty
