Hip-hop is a musical genre where many artists express themselves on many topics, even the holiday season. In fact, 90’s r&b group Next‘s dancefloor viagra anthem “Too Close” & later the viral “Why you Lyin’” is actually over a Christmas banger (thanks, Kurtis Blow)
Here is a mix we’ve curated with our favorite Christmas bangers that you can bump without feeling corny. The holiday season is filled with many emotions. Maybe you’re feeling warm, so you throw on Kanye West‘s “Christmas in Harlem“, or maybe you’re feeling thankful, so you throw on “I Wish” & “Santa Claus Comes Straight to the Ghetto” by Tha Dogg Pound alongside some Hennessy in the eggnog.
Of course, there’s nontraditional & crude ones (“Merry Muthaphukkin Xmas” from the late, great, Eazy-E) to the bass filled, pre-twerking percolatin’ “What You Want for Christmas?” by Quad City DJs and The Ying Yang Twinz’ “Bang the Club” . (Perfect for your holiday work parties).
Here’s a bonus one Spotify didn’t have, possibly the GOAT of hip-hop Xmas bangers…from the one and only DMX.
Listen below and let us know what you think. ‘Tis the season.
