In our tireless quest to cover all musical bases this Christmas, we're turning our attention to hip-hop. Not a genre, perhaps, you would usually associate with good will to all men and other festive sentiments, but the home to some proper holiday classics nonetheless.
Featured: everyone from Run-DMC and Treacherous Three, to Snoop Dogg and Nate Dogg, to Busta Rhymes and Outkast. And check out these titles: Christmas Rappin', Player's Ball, Santa Claus Goes Straight to the Ghetto and, best of all, Merry Mutha****** Xmas ... Merry Mutha****** Xmas, indeed.
