Tini MC – “Christmas Hip Hop Beat”

If there was such thing as a textbook Christmas hip-hop beat, this would be it. Nothing fancy, just exactly what you would expect




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




Rap Allstars – “Last Christmas” ft. Leroy Daniels

Back in 1998, the Rap Allstars created their own rendition of George Michael’s classic song “Last Christmas”. It’s a great song and fits perfectly into any Christmas playlist. Nothing revolutionary here, just good old fashion hip hop Christmas music. There’s also a video to go along with it. Christmas Relevance Naughty or Nice? Santa’s Score




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




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




B.g.o.t.i. – “O Holy Night”

At this point, I might just continue posting songs from Christmas On Death Row until the album is over. It’s that good! This one comes from the mysterious B.G.O.T.I.¬†who I cannot find anything about using Google (that’s a first). Regardless, this rendition of “O Holy Night” is one of the best I can remember –




6 Feet Deep – “Frosty The Snowman”

I concede… it’s only October, but Christmas on Death Row is already getting me in the Christmas spirit. This rendition of “Frosty The Snowman” by male R&B group 6 Feet Deep is a familiar take on a classic tune. With an emphasis on the drums and a healthy dose of funk on the bass guitar,




“Santa Baby” ft Run DMC, Mase, Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Salt N Pepa, Onyx, and Keith Murray

Ready for a new take on the classic song “Santa Baby”? If the YouTube commenters are right, this version was actually featured in The Simpsons and is based off a Fugees beat. Originally, though, it appeared on the compilation album A Very Special Christmas Vol. 3. Despite all the features, the track moves pretty quickly
