On overload from some of the schmaltzy Christmas songs that seem to permeate every shopping venue, I thought I might switch it up and deck the halls with a mix of holiday hip hop. Returning home I went through my massive collection of pop culture.
Filed under “vintage Christmas rapping” I expected to see some old school classics like Run D.M.C’s 1987 “Christmas in Hollis.”
Instead of some funked up holiday tunes, Christmas rapping took on decidedly different meaning in mid-century America as evidenced by this article that appeared in Good Housekeeping, December 1946. Instead of chillin’ with Santa I got bunch of Xmas etiquette do’s and don’ts.
Talk about a hip hop mashup.
