1) Christmas Rap (1987)
This album features Run-DMC’s Christmas hit, Derek B’s “Chillin’ with Santa,” Sweet Tee’s “Let the Jingle Bells Rock,” and the playful “Dana Dane is Coming to Town” by Dana Dane… A great seasonal gift for fans of 80′s hip-hop.

Suge Knight dropped this Christmas compilation with help from Tha Dogg Pound, Danny Boy, Nate Dogg, and others.
3) Jim Jones- Dipset Christmas (2006)
“I wanted to make a Christmas album for kids in the hood and s*** like that,” says Jim Jones about A Dipset Xmas. It features reworked Christmas favorites as well as new unreleased material.
4) Gift Rap (2004)
Then Cross Movement’s Gift Rap delivers Christmas rap garnished with a bit of gospel.
5) A Very Special Christmas (1987)
A Very Special Christmas isn’t a full Christmas rap album but it features Run-DMC’s “Christmas in Hollis,” as well as timeless tunes from U2, Madonna, Eurythmics, and others. The best part is that A Very Special Christmas was recorded as a benefit album to assist the Special Olympics.
