Rappy Christmas! The 10 best festive hip hop songs of all time

Metro

Getting bored of Mistletoe And Whine and Noddy ‘strangled cockerel’ Holder? Here’s an alternative Christmas playlist. There are plenty of others, of course, but they’re seasonally stuffed with obscenities.

Warning: Some videos may contain language that some may find offensive.

1. Jim Jones – Dipset Xmas Time

Great for a seasonal sing along, this. All together now – ‘Livin’ fast and ballin’ at Christmas time.’ In case you’re wondering, Dipset is short for The Diplomats, the musical group to which Jim lad belongs.

2. Outkast – Player’s Ball (Christmas Edition)

What’s more festive than celebrating the Player’s Ball – an annual convention of pimps? Anything. Great song though.

3. Run DMC – Christmas In Hollis

The mark of a good Christmas music video is the inclusion of a dog in reindeer antlers.

4. TLC – Sleigh Ride

Oh fine, this isn’t technically hip hop. But Left Eye raps about Santa…

Guest Post: RealTalented

Today’s post is a little different. I asked one of my followers, realtalented to guest post for me. I thought with his unique style of expressing himself, it would be really cool if he could whip up a little somethin’ about fashion for my blog. So here it is, hope you enjoy it…

If u asking about fashion

I’m only grasping it

But laughing

Because I don’t know what happened

Skinny jeans tighter than the tights u wrestle in

Then have the audacity to sag them, damn

It’s embarrassing

But to each his own

I don’t mean to preach but I’m grown

Grown man that’s my tone

Style I wear it like it’s my cologne

Will I conform, probably won’t

Because originality is my home

If I had to choose my fashion will be tattoos

I know people like is that really what u would say if they ask u

Yeah I laugh too

But in my defense I like things that’s forever written in stone like a statue

They say I’m nuts like a cashew

I’m on a different level with mine I already passed u

Everybody playing checkers I’m playing chess n I’m about to castle u

Now with words so smooth how can I not have style

That’s something I’m asking u
