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.

Yeezus is not a jolly record by any means, but the guys over at Local Business Comedy have taken the liberty of giving it the Christmas treatment. Verses from Kris Kringle + Yeezus Instrumentals = Kreezus!
Looking for a playlist of old school hip-hop Christmas jams? Look no further. @JefCzekaj from Hip+Hop Don’t Stop put together this 42 minute kid-friendly mix of Hip Hop Christmas songs from the ’80s!
“Here we gooo!!” Not sure why this mash-up artist decided to include Super Mario and Grand Theft Auto sound clips to kick off this epic mash-up, but it got me amped up!
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).
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.
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.
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.
