A Hip Hop Christmas Part 1: DMX sing-raps Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer
18 December 2012 10:34 AM
As you will soon appreciate, it is a matter of pride to hard-as-nails, seven-times-jailed, New York-raised rapper DMX to be able to recite the names of all nine of Santa's reindeer in order.*
He gets a chance to show off his talents, when some lady from a radio station politely asks "Will you do us the honour of spitting off the lyrics from Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer?" She hardly has time to finish her sentence, before DMX is sucking his teeth, declaring scornfully "I KNOW the lyrics", and launching into an impromptu version of the song complete with improvised percussion. That's one festive gentleman.
*For those interested, the correct order is, of course:
and, not forgetting Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
