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
