Posted By on Mon, Dec 22, 2014 at 9:00 AM


Crack open a 40 oz, go buckwild on Santa’s lap and have yourself a merry little Christmas with your peeps and fam.


1. Kanye West,“Christmas in Harlem”
Besides giving his “D-ricious” hot chocolate as a gift, Kanye West’s instant Christmas classic is a pretty wholesome affair about living the good life in New York and hitting the malls.




2. RUN-DMC, “Christmas in Hollis”
Christmas in Queens with collard greens, mac ‘n’ cheese and Santa dropping G’s? Count me in.


3. Nate Dogg, Snoop Dogg– “Santa Claus Goes Straight To the Ghetto”
Before Nate Dogg’s untimely death and Snoop Dogg rap battling as Moses against Saint Nick, there was the simple tale of Santa’s trip to skid row.


4. Ludacris, “Ludachrismas”
Ever wanted to go hard on an egg nog binge while jamming to gangsta Christmas rap? This is the song to get you in the spirit.
