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

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.
“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
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.

I know it’s rare, but the Ying Yang Twins are actually on good behavior for this song. There are a few lines about their desire for spiked egg nog and tightly rolled blunts, but that’s par for the course. Aside from that, “Sleigh Ride” has got to be one of the cleanest and morally right
The Ying Yang Twins are so 10 years ago… but Santa doesn’t discriminate! The crunked out rap duo have their fair share of party bangers, and Christmas parties are no exception. “Deck Da Club” is textbook Ying Yang with some added holiday cheer. By the name of the song, you can probably tell it is
