While we celebrate the holidays, Rocks Off is resurrecting a few of our best Christmas-themed blogs from the past few years. (Wait... resurrecting is Easter. Never mind.) This blog originally appeared December 20, 2010.

Show us one hip-hop head who isn't obsessed with corny Christmas sing-alongs and we'll show you a liar. Nothing says "hip-hop" like cheery holiday tunes about sharing and caring. In the spirit of holiday music, Rocks Off compiled a list of five Christmas rap songs guaranteed to make you the famous at the family Christmas party.

5. RZA feat. Craig Ferguson, "Deck the Halls (Live)"
So what if RZA sounds like your mother-in-law singing in the shower right after someone turned up the hot water downstairs? It's the muthafuckin' RZA. Singing "Deck the Halls."

4. Eazy-E, "Merry Muthafuckin' Christmas"
There's no better way to get in the Christmas spirit than Eazy-E's prepubescent voice wishing your family a "Merry muthafuckin' Christmas and a fucked up New Year." The outro is teeming with inspiration: "And they all went to prison and lived fucked up ever after. The end."

3. Run-DMC, "Christmas in Hollis"
The great thing about "Christmas in Hollis" is that it manages to be both funny and catchy with just the right dose of corny. We dare you to sit still when that horn riff drops. We dare you.
