DMX performs 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer'

Posted on

What’s his name? It’s DMX — and he just dropped a f—load of Christmas cheer on all y’all.

During a recent visit to New York’s Power 105.1, the rapper was asked to put his own spin on the timeless Christmas tune “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” Dark Man X complied, waving away a lyrics sheet and reciting the song from memory so excitedly that he sped ahead of his accompaniment.

By the time DMX got past the preamble, he was ad-libbing and sing-rapping like some sort of enchanted hip-hop elf — leaving the radio station with a version of “Rudolph” that deserves to become a classic.

Even Ja Rule has to admit that DMX killed it. Watch here:
