Merry DMX-mas! Everyone’s favourite bark-tastic rapper has just sideswiped us with some Christmas ‘chur by recording a full-length cover of the festive classic ‘Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer’.
The ‘X Gon’ Give It To Ya’ legend has gifted us all with a full-length rendition of the holiday favourite after a short viral clip of him rapping the carol back in 2012 took internet by storm.
Now, five years later, he’s recorded a full version as part of Spotify’s new ‘Singles: Christmas’ playlist.
Hearing DMX shout classic lyrics such as “BUT DO YOU RECALL / THE MOST FAMOUS REINDEER OF ALL?” and “RUDOLPH WITH YOUR NOSE SO BRIGHT / WON’T YOU GUIDE MY SLEIGH TONIGHT?” in his trademark gruff howl is the Chrissy present we never knew we needed, or wanted.
Sadly, it arrives as the rapper faces jail time, after pleading guilty to tax evasion and fraud to the tune of US$1.7 million.
Check out both his OG viral video, and the new recorded version, below.
Just like Santa on the night before Christmas, X gon’ deliver to ya.
