Well, here's something you probably never expected to see in your short little lifetime. It's amazing, and it involves rapper DMX! Remember him?? Wayyyy back in the day, my brother and I would blast "One More Road to Cross" on our way to school, pretending we could relate to the song despite the fact we were driving in his brand-new Honda through our tiny suburb on our way to our college-preparatory private school dressed in khakis with lunches packed by our mom. So color me surprised (and nostalgic) when the rapper made yet another hit recently ... in the form of him "singing", sort of, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."
It really is as bizarre as it sounds, but strangely enough, it's kind of a fantastic version of the classic Christmas carol. He's got charisma, he's got charm, he's ... err, delightful and cute. He even accompanies himself with a helpful nearby tabletop.
Yeah, it's that insane, but it's only a minute out of your life, and you're actually going to really enjoy it.
Check it out:
Hilarious, right? Gotta love that he threw in a "WHAT!" in his rendition. No wonder this version has been making the rounds on Facebook since it was posted just last Monday. Who knew that DMX, of all artists, could get you into the holiday spirit?
And just for fun, someone named Andrew Spena took the audio from the track and paired it with scenes from the actual movie, because it's the Internet and this is what happens. It's not as great as watching DMX himself perform, but it's still entertaining and really makes you want to watch the adorable movie one more time nonetheless.
Happy holidays! And thanks DMX for being awesome!
