The time of year is upon us. Temperatures are down. Lights are up. Trees are decorated. Cookies are being baked. And school is (almost) out. So we here at A Beat A Day want to give you the ultimate Christmas playlist. But we aren’t going to give it to you all at once. No, that would be too easy. 25 songs, 25 days from a variety of artists and genres, so that everyone has a little something they can listen to on Christmas Day. And for those of you who do not celebrate Christmas, no worries. There will be some special songs for you as well :).
I was deciding between writing a traditional Christmas song or sticking to my hip-hop roots. A lot of people may not realize this, but there are actually a lot of good hip-hop Christmas songs out there. So I am going to bring them to you. My personal favorite is “Christmas in Hollis.” One of the more well-known hip-hop Christmas songs, “Christmas in Hollis” is an awesome song for many reasons. Run-DMC kills it with some of those dope rhymes over an amazing beat. The horns make the song and the bells jingling give it that Christmas spirit. I know you’ll will love this one.
P.S. If you haven’t seen “The Night Before” yet, this song plays an important (and funny) role in the movie.
Keep up with our 25 Days of Christmas playlist. New songs added everyday! We would like to wish everyone and their families a happy holiday season. Fill it with love, laughter, and music.
