    West Coast Bad Boyz - “High Fo Xmas”

    Unlike most of the other songs on this list that either A) use a trademark Christmas melody in the instrumental or B) joke about Christmas lists, the West Coast Bad Boyz deliver a truly original song. It’s a reflective, downtempo tune that talks about the realities of the ghetto Xmas. It’s not a happy song, but it’s so well-written that it’s hard not keep this one in your stash of Christmas music, whether or not it's appropriate for the occasion.

    Walked up out the house, hopped in the drop that was on them D’s Rollin solo, so you know my 44's right next to me No Christmas carols and I ain’t never seen no Saint Nick Just 4 Gs, some dope fiends, and *uhh* a gangsta bitch
