Tag: Santa’s Score: 4/5

“Christmas in Boston” feat. 1982 (Statik Selektah & Termanology), Kali, Reks, JFK & Teyana Taylor

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. Apparently that list of rappers wasn’t long enough: a bunch of Boston emcees put together




Kreezus (Kanye West’s Yeezus: Christmas Edition)

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!




“You Hear Them Bells Go” (Parody of Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, and Plies)

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).




Damani & Chris Starr – “A Gift That Keeps On Giving”

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.




Twiztid – “Waiting On Christmas Gifts” (based on Snoop Dogg’s “Gin & Juice”)

Snoop Dogg’s “Gin & Juice” is a classic hip-hop track that will never get old. You already knew that though. Twiztid use this to their advantage, using the instrumental as the backdrop for this song about waiting for Santa on Christmas Eve.




Mac Lethal – “Santa Raps SO Fast!!!”

Mac Lethal is back at it again with yet another installation of his “fast rap” series. This time, he claims a NEW WORLD RECORD!!! See for yourself if he can back up his claim, or if he should dejectedly go climbing back up the chimney.




2-Cent Christmas 2013 – Parody Video (Impersonations of Jay-Z, Meek Mill, Juicy J, and MANY more)

The moment we have all been waiting for… #2CentXmas 2013!! The fifth annual 2-Cent Christmas video is out now and does not disappoint! Switching it up this year, the group performs live on stage for the majority of the songs, rather than making it purely a music video as they have done in the past. Christmas




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




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,
