Christopher Blay and guest host Robert Hodge visit Sig’s Lagoon Records, to talk about DJ Screw and their picks for the top five Hip-Hop Christmas songs of all time.
“There are some terrible ones, and it feels like they’re all from the nineties.”
1. Run DMC: Christmas in Hollis
2. Outkast: Player’s Ball
3. MF DOOM: DOOM XMAS – (Cookin Soul remixes)
4. The Treacherous Three: Santa’s Rap
5. TLC: Sleigh Ride
Be sure and check out our Spotify Hip-Hop Christmas song playlist.
Thanks Hodge and Blay for a fun subgenre list and for doing at one of my favorite Houston galleries. (And thanks for reminding me about that MF Doom.) I want to add a mention, at least for historical importance, of the first rap record released on a major label, big hit in late-1979 the same year as ‘Rappers Delight’ hit, and the FIRST hip hop Christmas song: Kurtis Blow’s ’Christmas Rappin’.
