Phat Crispy – “Christmas In The Hood”

Need a grimy X-mas beat to rhyme over? Here is your ticket.




“Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies Remix”

Get your mythical swag on with this hip-hop version of “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies”. This shit reminds me of the old Zelda games… I swear they had music like this in some of the dungeons.   




SofaSoundBeats – “Carol of the Swag”

“Carol of the Bells” is one of the most highly used songs for hip-hop Christmas songs, and SofaSoundBeats keeps the ball rolling with this one. This beat is heavily watermarked which makes it (significantly) less enjoyable. I normally avoid posting music with watermarks, but I’ll give this one a pass this time: the song’s name is




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.




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.




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




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




Murs – “Christmas Rules Everything Around Me” (+ Lyrics)

The seasoned LA rap vet wishes a Merry X-Murs to you and yours. Just released about a week ago, “Christmas Rules Everything Around Me” is a trap-style Christmas rap produced by Curtiss King. Fueled off a “Carol of the Bells” sample, it’s not a cheerful instrumental but then again, the song itself isn’t the most




Terrace Martin – “Christmas On Soul” ft. Snoop Dogg & J. Black

Yesterday, Terrace Martin’s acclaimed album 3ChordFold received the remix treatment in the form of 3ChordFold:Remixed. Here is a b-side from that album that didn’t make the cut, but (thankfully) was released separately. “Christmas On Soul” warms up to the Christmas spirit with the “Jingle Bells” instrumental we all know and love. Then the beat drops




Gucci Mane – “Christmas Tree” (feat. PeeWee & OJ Da Juiceman)

Santa’s first gift in 2013 is a fresh dose of the Trap God himself. Unfortunately, the track’s only Christmas mention is during the chorus, but ay, it’s only September. Gotta warm up to the season somehow. I actually like this song, but it is extremely Naughty, talking almost exclusively about blowing chron and getting down
