Ten best hip-hop Christmas songs

Categories: Lists

4. OutKast - "Player's Ball" (Original Christmas Version)
This classic track was also featured on the A La Face Family Christmas album, and it was originally stuffed with Christmas references, from lines like, "You thought I'd break my neck/To help y'all deck the halls," to the original chorus, "Now I'm here to tell you there's a better way/When the player's ball is happening on Christmas day." A solid song from two of the slickest MCs ever.

3. Run DMC - "Christmas in Hollis"
This Christmas hip-hop jewel dropped in 1987 on the first volume of A Very Special Christmas. Jam Master Jay cuts it up, while Run -- backed by a funky horn sample from Clarence Carter's "Back Door Santa" -- rhymes about returning Santa's wallet to find a big reward under the tree, and DMC drops some rhymes about his mom's cooking.

2. Eazy - E - "Merry Muthafuckin Christmas"
This is pure unadulterated gangster rap from Eazy-E. The song runs through gangsta versions of Eazy's favorite Christmas songs like, "All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth" and "Jingle Bells." You'll be laughing by the time you arrive at the end with the collective singing of "Merry Muthafuckin' Christmas."
