Rapping the Presents for Christmas

I like rap music.  I like christmas songs.  There in lies the problem.  There is an incredible lack of christmas rap.  I understand the classic carols are important, but most other genres have a decent share of christmas songs.  Country music has great, sad christmas songs.  Rock music has fun, jump around christmas music.  Pop music has updated verisions of classics, and occasionally new christmas songs.  But rap?

This christmas I want Kayne West, Lupe Fiasco, Jason Foxx, Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z, and Mos Def to come out with a christmas albums.  If you think it can’t be done, let me share two things.

1.  There have been  good Christmas raps before.  A la “Christmas in Hollis” (the video is some goof high school boys, but the song  is still fly)

2.  Ludacris is getting the trend started this year.  The song has a sweet background and tons of product placement for his film Fred Claus.  (There is no real video yet, but check the song out)
