This Christmas

It’s amazing how much mileage Run-DMC’s “Christmas In Hollis” gets. It’s become the “Rapper’s Delight” of holiday season rap. It gets so much fuckin’ airplay even today it makes me sick.

“It was December 24th on Hollis Ave in the dark
When I seen a man chilling with his dog in the park
I approached very slowly with my heart full of fear
Looked at his dog, oh my god, an ill reindeer.”

Yawn! I’m from Queens, grew up idolizing Run and his sideburns and LL. But I can’t take it no more. Ba-humbug!

Actually missing from the impressive holiday list Bfred put together (I had no knowledge of about 5 of them shits) he neglected to include my favorite joint. It’s off Profile’s Christmas Rap LP. No not the Sweet Tee one he included (even though that’s my girl. I wore out my copy of It’s Tee Time). It’s the Kangol wearing brother that always stood in Slick Rick The Ruler’s shadow: Dana Dane.

Fuck Santa (I’m sorry you young bucks that are still awake), it’s “Dana Dane Is Coming To Town.” I need that Mp3 to see if it holds up. But that was my joint right there. I hope it’s as good as I remember.

Sidebar: Remember after he fell off, Dana signed with J Prince at Rap-a-lot and later Madonna’s Maverick Records. Strange. Very strange. I need the story behind all that.

Non related: The lil cracker from Terminator 2 really did wear the PE T shirt throughout the whole film. That was revolutionary. Thank you John Connor.
