Here at FOO we've been completely indoctrinated by the mind numbing Christmas adverts and as we speak Baz is defrosting the Iceland prawn ring and pizza kebabs in time for the office party. We've put together a wish list of Christmas tunes that will keep you feeling festive without wanting to castrate Nobbie from Slade with a blunt pair of garden shears. If you're of a sensitive disposition i.e the words Merry Christams muther f**ker offend, then we suggest you check out some our over less sweary videos here.
Kurtis Blow - Christmas Rap
You know that song that goes 'These are the breaks' well this is the same guy. He's pretty cool and was one of the first guys to start rapping in the 70s. Enjoy his Christmas rap, you can definitely play this on the office juke box.
Run DMC - Christmas in Hollis
As well as running a small monopoly on Adidas shell toe trainers in the 80s Run DMC are the kings of Christmas cheer. Hollis (Queens NY) is where they used to live, so they're just showing you how they get down in their home town at the festive period.
Snoop Dogg - Santa Claus Goes Straight To The Ghetto
So what does Snoop Dogg really want in his stocking? It would appear a flying car! This song is taken from the cheerfully titled album Christmas On Death Row released in 1996. Featuring Snoop Doggy Dogg, Daz Dillinger, Nate Dogg (R.I.P), Bad Azz, and Tray Dee. "Passing out gifts, blazing up spliffs, can you dig it?"
Spor - Thugged Out Elves
Lifted Music C.E.O Spor dons his elf ears for a grimey drum and bass Christmas jingle. Think Dillinja going head to head with a Santa's little helper after a night on the town and you've some god damn Thugged Out Elves on your hands.
Vybz Kartel Ft Sheba - Like Christmas
We all know that Vybz Kartel's vocoder game is tight, but now he's got Sheba involved it's next level! Spreading some ballady dancehall love this festive season and wishing Vybz a merry Christmas in the pen!
Movado Ft Flexx & Savage - Gully Christmas
Another dancehall Christmas song with Mavado, Flexxx and Savage. Is it me or is he saying he is getting a 'brand new llama fie Christmas'? I didn't know Mavado liked those cute furry little animals and I'm sure as sugar they're not indigenous to Jamaica.
ZDot - Grime's Christmas
Oh my dayz! This is a grimey Christmas riddim! Why don't you and your mates spit some bars over this beat as a present for someone, ZDot is giving it away for free here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/n0sxsw.
Basshunter - Jingle Bells
Hard house action man lookalike Basshunter has put together a Christmas anthem. It's sounds like Scooter has invited a slightly Swedish Gareth Gates to bounce around in a pair of fluffy boots and a neon thong singing the words to jingle bells.
Yellowman - We Wish You A Reggae Christmas
Yellowman never disappoints, his reggae Christmas sounds amazing; Sizzla and Shabba are invited! Someone grab the tape recorder!
12 J's of Xmas
Afroman shot to fame in 2001 with his tune Because I Got High it turns out his Chirstmas songs are of a similar ilk. He's got a big problem with the feds and has dedicated a Christmas carol to them. Here's an extract: "On the first day of Christmas the police sent to me the S.W.A.T. team in a pear tree."
