Christmas Past: Top 5 Christmas Rap Songs
2. Kanye West, "Christmas in Harlem"
Santa kicks a mean 16 on Kanye's "Christmas in Harlem." He even explains why we keep seeing him with that ridiculously long beard. "I'll be there soon on my sleigh, me and Rudolph / thugs think I'm a blood 'cause I won't take this red suit off / I swear I got the freshest wardrobe / I let my beard grow cause it's cold in the North Pole."
1. Kurtis Blow, "Christmas Rappin'"
Back when Kanye was still a young boy playing with water pistol, Kurtis Blow kept it real with this funky Christmas tale. Ol' boy was dead serious about this Christmas business, too. He had on his best loan appointment suit for the TOTP performance in this clip. Genius as genius does.
