Spyder-D – “Ghetto Santa”

Another cut off the 1987 Christmas Rap compilation, “Ghetto Santa” is a no frills Christmas rap song. With Spyder-D and DJ Doc on production, the instrumental is a hip-hop version of “Jingle Bells” with sleigh bells layered on to give it a distinctive Christmas vibe.




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




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




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,




Juice Crew All-Stars – “Cold Chillin’ Christmas”

Back in 1988, the Juice Crew released “Cold Chillin’ Christmas” as part of the Warner Bros. Records’ compilation Winter Warnerland. On the track, Juice Crew members Fly Ty, Big Daddy Kane, Roxanne Shanté, and MC Shan spit some G-rated stories and raps about Christmas time. The track is rare, as I could not find an official download




West Coast Bad Boyz – “High Fo Xmas” (with Lyrics)

Let’s hop in a time machine. Having just released the West Coast Bad Boyz, Vol. 1 compilation album in August of ’94, Master P’s No Limit Records is starting to gain momentum. The label is no longer in it’s infancy but still has a few years to go before it will release gold- and platinum-selling albums like




Ludacris – “Ludacrismas”

In the 2007 comedy Fred Claus starring Vince Vaughn and Paul Giamatti, Ludacris plays the part of DJ Donnie, the official DJ of the North Pole. It’s a small role as he only appears in one scene where Fred (Vince Vaughn) is fed up with the redundancy of DJ Donnie’s track selection. Check it out




Dirty Boyz – “All I Want For Christmas”

Who’s tryin to turn up and keep it thug this Christmas season!?! If so, the Dirty Boyz have you covered. They outline a very long Christmas wish list, but there is no doubt they are getting mounds of coal poured on their heads Christmas morning. I wasn’t a fan of this song at first, but after
