10 best Christmas rap songs
This collection of tracks is first and foremost dedicated to DMX, the legend that first inspired me to dive into the world of holiday hip-hop.
It was an otherwise average working day when a friend sent me his version of “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”, and I thought … it can’t be fair. And then I thought, It is totally true. The turn the rapper gave to the holiday staple was beyond anything I could have expected. What a blessing it is to have in the canon. But to enter this behind on a song and genre is a humbling reminder that there are years and years of Christmas rap excellence to catch up on. You see, Christmas Rap â¢ (not to be confused with Christmas Wrap) is a genre of holiday music that orbits its own sun. It combines the whimsy of bells with the power of bars.
So let’s revisit a few tracks that promise to contrast with the soft sweetness of piano and guitar and the sweet sweetness you’ll find elsewhere this season. Note: This is by no means an exhaustive list, but rather a starter pack. These are songs that dare to go where Michael BublÃ© doesn’t want, offering a touch of humor, a pinch of harsh reality, and of course, bells. Even the toughest rappers know that a good holiday anthem is nothing without a little bit of a bell.
