So my friend E hooked me up with some songs from this ridiculous album that apparently someone he knows got from a truckstop. It came out in 1990 and it is some of the most badass christmas jams you’ve ever heard. Shit is fucking off the wall.
OK “Deck the Halls” is pretty much a completely straight-ahead rendition of – guess which song – deck the halls. Except, you know, rapped over what passed for a “beat” back when they dreamed this shit up. Oh yeah and he raps about his “gay apparel,” how neat is that.
Even better yet –
Crew X – Santa Rap
Then E sent me this track and I was amazed – I heard this song back when I was a kid because we had this tape that had all kinds of weird-ass christmas music on it and I remember banging this when I was like 7 and i thought it was sort of dorky but it was the closest thing i had to rap back then. Until I bought my Kris Kross tape but thats a post for another time. Anyway this song is fucking fantastic and if you get one christmas song this year make it this one.
