Snoop Dogg and Boyz II Men Team Up on ‘Ghetto’ Christmas Song [LISTEN]
Just in time for the holidays, Snoop Dogg and Boyz II Men have teamed up to deliver their Christmas rendition of “Santa Claus Goes to the Ghetto.”
The song is actually an update of the original version of the same name that appeared on the 1996 Christmas on Death Row compilation album. On the new version, the Philadelphia trio adds their soulful voices on the hook (replacing the late Nate Dogg's vocals) while Snoop spits his yuletide rhymes.
"Santa Claus on the ceiling, Jack Frost chillin' / Pinch the Grinch for being a holiday villain / Season's greetings, all the proceedings / Are brought to you by the church house where we'll be eatin'," raps Snoop on the plodding track. He later adds, "All I want for Christmas is my 6-4 Chevrolet / And a granddaughter for her grandmother Beverly."
You can listen to the song above, and if you want to add it to your Christmas playlist, you can cop it right now on iTunes.
In an interview with Billboard, Snoop said that he plans to chill with his family during the holiday season.
"My family and I really just relax and enjoy time with each other. The year is always hectic for us so we just chill out," he told the publication. "We don’t have any fancy traditions but our holiday is all about good food, good company, and good music."
"My family all comes together to help out but my wife, Boss Lady, always leads the way," he continued. "She’s an amazing cook and pulls it all together for the holidays. We sometimes have family over to hit the BBQ as well. Nothing like a Dogg family Christmas meal!"
As for 2018, Snoop plans to broaden his musical horizons and tackle a genre he has never done before -- gospel!
"I have always wanted to try Gospel. This may surprise some people but all I gotta say is get ready for some good for your soul music in 2018!" he said.
Have a Merry Christmizzle!
